Engineering for Access (and Success)!


We were recently informed by his very proud mother that Cameron Duncan Lyon (Manor, 2016) has won first place in a nationwide engineering competition.

Cameron, currently studying Biomedical Engineering at Nottingham Trent University, entered with his ingenious design for a fibre optic pillow that can detect signs of epileptic seizures during sleep. It’s an exceptional idea, clearly very well thought through as the judges thought it worthy of the £5000 prize (to go towards building a prototype of his design). 

His mother said: “He entered the competition off his own back, without university prompting or support. That initiative and attitude is something that I feel his time at Clayesmore really encouraged. Thank you.”
