Larissa (L5 Aesc) was the South East regional finalist of the Big Bang competition this year and presented her project on digital healthcare at the National Big Bang fair at The NEC in Birmingham on Wednesday 22 June.  She did a fabulous job communicating her research on the impact of digital devices and apps on healthcare, how they are currently used and how they may be used in the future.  Her superb work won her the Junior Scientist of the year runner up prize! Larissa was mentored throughout her project by Habs alumni Dr Mala Mawkin so this was a lovely ‘Habs STEM’ joint effort.

Larissa very much enjoyed her time at the fair, especially when she got to meet Habs Girl Alumni Nicola Jacobson who was presenting with the National Grid team.
