Jacob Levy, a Year 5 pupil at Rye St Antony has had much to celebrate recently.
Firstly, he had the chance to get his hands dirty and to get involved with a working archaeology project. He is due to be presented with his ‘Sifting Project’ certificate this Thursday.
As if that were not enough, he was then delighted to discover that he has been chosen as one of only two winners of a global competition. The challenge was to invent something useful to help people with hearing loss and was run by the charity ‘Ideas For Ears’ under their ‘MED-EL’s Global Inventors Art Competition’ (http://www.ideas4ears.com/uk/).

Jacob’s prize is a four-day trip to MED-EL in Innsbruck Austria to learn more about hearing loss and then how inventions are translated from ideas into reality. He will also get a special mention in the charity’s media release on the 9th November celebrating World Inventors Day. What amazing achievements.
