In February, Max Hentges and Nigel Rising competed in the regional “Jugend forscht” competition. After spending the year planning, inventing, testing, and perfecting a safety monitor for bikes, they presented their device and report to the jury. The judges were so impressed with their work, they moved them up to the 15-21 year-old category where they won first place.
On March 25 -26th, they competed Berlin-wide in the same advanced category, and again took first place. The two eighth graders are heading to the Bundeswettbewerb in Künzelsau at the end of May.
We wish them all the best and hope the two JFKS students can make it to the top in all of Germany!
