Year 11 students Leynner, Charles and Bruno become EGA's first ever CREST Gold award winners

Congratulations to 'The AlphaApps' - Leynner, Charles and Bruno

Our STEM team “The AlphaApps” have been awarded the honourable CREST Gold Award for their Augmented Reality product “Big T Adventures”. This achievement is the 4th national award that the AlphaApps have won since they first were formed by team leader Leynner Caicedo in 2017. The collection now includes a TeenTech Award, CREST Silver Award, Jack Petchey Awards and now CREST Gold.

The CREST organisation award brilliant STEM projects all year round with their most prestigious awards being the CREST Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. The Gold award is reserved for A Level students as the expectation of research and development is the equivalent of an A Level coursework/project. To achieve a CREST Gold for a project that was completed before even finishing Year 10 is a huge accomplishment! We are very proud of EGA’s first CREST Gold winners!

Well done boys!
