Four 6a Biologists competed in a national competition hosted by Imperial College London, in association with Scleroderma & Raynaud’s UK (SRUK). The team came in first place across the UK, beating 47 other schools.

The aims of the competition were to stretch pupils beyond the scope of the curriculum to understand trends in Science and Engineering impacting Medicine in the future.

The team designed a product called ”RayAlert” which consisted of a smart ring and bracelet that connects to a smartphone to notify users of incoming Raynaud’s attacks alongside being able to track individual symptoms and triggers. The team’s design focused on ensuring there would be no bias based on age, gender, or ethnicity which is a common issue with this style of device currently.
