And the winner is...
The Regional Heat of the IOM3 National Lecture Competition was held on 1 of March at the Royal Victoria Hotel. The audience and judging panel learnt much from four excellent lectures covering products as diverse as glass, decking, plate and slinkies. Because of the high quality of the lectures there was much debate amongst the judges, but eventually they decided that the winner was Simon Bainbridge from Siemens VAI for his lecture titled 'Dropping Slinkies'. Simon won £100 and will represent the region in the North East Final which will be held on the Friday 18 March at the Namtec offices on the site of Tata's Swinden Technology Centre in Rotherham. The three other participants were difficult to separate so Sarah Haine, Amir Nabil and Navaneeth Ranakrishnan each received £60.
