A SIXTH former at King’s College in Taunton has picked up a prestigious design technology award.
Ted Vickery received the gold medal for engineering excellence from The Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation.
The award goes to a student whose project demonstrates outstanding craftsmanship.
Ted’s project, a small-scale wind tunnel, demonstrated the physical principles behind aerodynamics.
Jason Grindle, head of DT at King’s, said: “I’m delighted for Ted that the quality of his work has been recognised nationally.
"It sets a magnificent example for our younger DT pupils to aspire to and all our congratulations go to Ted.”
Ted is pictured receiving his award from John Lowe, of the foundation.
