The Berners-Lee Cup

Named after the pioneering British Computer Scientist who invented the internet, the Berners-Lee cup is awarded to the team which produces the best presentation on the role of Mathematics in Green Technology. The judges will consider both the electronic slides and the presentation to fellow pupils and staff.

Winning entry: Carl Gauss Tech - Maths in Gravity Lamps

Victoria Birrel | Audrey Cabay | Mark Kachkaev | Amirali Mansourfar

The judges and students were hugely impressed by this presentation not only in terms of fulfilling the brief about exploring the mathematics in green technology, but also for recognising the wider social impact this could have in the developing world. It is summarised effectively by a pupil who explains below that the reason they voted for it as the most effective presentation was due to...

"...[t]he way [Carl Gauss Tech] were able to bring awareness to the issue of lack of electricity and reliability on biomass fuel. Also the way that they think this issue should be fix is both creative and interesting to learn about. The group also give insight on the social, economical and environmental impact that the lamp could have which helps understand further."

Winning entry:

Ashutosh Kukreja

The judges were impressed by Ashutosh's skills as a Director as he was the only to student to produce two videos as part of Project Jugaad.

His first video on New Delhi captured the essence of the busy metropolis but also was informative and provided a plethora of information on the history of the City, the infrastructure, the food and the shopping! It was agreed also that the video he produced for his group's entry on the role of mathematics in Hydro Electric Power was the most professionally produced of all the groups.

The Sorrell Award

The Sorrell award goes to the group which has projected the most professional image and is judged on the strength of the its logo, the hard copy poster, use of digital media (both to produce their project but also to share their findings and connect via social media) and any videos that have been produced.

Winning entry: Carl Gauss Tech - Maths in Gravity Lamps

Victoria Birrel | Audrey Cabay | Mark Kachkaev | Amirali Mansourfar

The judges were hugely impressed by the way this group harnessed the power of social media and wrote to the Director of the Gravity Lamp company to ask for advice and support. They even managed to persuade the company to film an explanation of how the lamp worked especially for their presentation (see slide 6). Their effective relationship with the company was also evident when the company promoted the group's work through their twitter account:

The Mandela Award for promoting cultural awareness

Individuals are invited to produce a 5 minute video about their school and city to share their experiences with pupils in different countries. 

This year's entries can be seen here.

Winning entry: Mark Kachkaev and Amirali Mansourfar Life in Moscow, Russia

This caught the eye of both judges and students with its effective use of music, interesting facts, and stunning photography being used to showcase the city of Moscow and provide an insight into life in Russia, as well as allowing other students to build an understanding of day to day life at the International School of Moscow.
