Students from Sutton Grammar School were presented with an engineering award in Westminster this month for designing a new underground space in London.

The four students claimed the prize at the Institution of Civil Engineers' (ICE) #ICanEngineer competition for their "R.U. Farming" project.

Students Michal Berkasiuk, Parthiv Dey, Edu Holovatyuk and Columbus Mais-Harding looked at replacing traditional farming methods with a robotic underground farm using conveyor belts to carry and nurture crops electronically.

Sutton Grammar School students competed with schools across London for the top prize of designing a new underground space.

ICE London director, Suzanna Moroney, said: “The #ICanEngineer Competition has shown that our schools are full of the engineers of tomorrow. I’ve been so impressed with the quality, detail and thought that have gone into all the entries. Every group should be incredibly proud of themselves.

“I hope too that these pupils now see that engineering is a fun, rewarding and creative career choice. Perhaps one day in the not too distant future, they will be able to put their designs into practice and be part of new underground projects in London."

The awards ceremony was held on November 10 at the ICE's headquarters in Westminster.
