NATIONAL WINNER OF THE LITTLE BIG IDEA COMPETITION
Cohen Baldwin from our Year 5/6 OC Class has been awarded $10,000 after being named the national winner of Origin’s Little Big Idea competition in the Grade 5-6 category. Selected from more than 1,100 entries, Cohen took top spot in his age category for his ‘Biolume’ idea - a device that injects illuminating micro-organisms into trees, allowing them to naturally emit light in a similar way to a street lamp. Cohen's idea was inspired by our Year 6 science fair, where he genetically modified three strains of bacteria to glow under UV light. Cohen’s video submission can be viewed here. “Cohen’s award-winning idea is a great example of how imagination and passion can inspire new ways of thinking about our world,” Dr Jordan Nguyen said. “The young inventor has identified energy production as an opportunity for innovation, coming up with a creative solution by harnessing his passion for biology and sustainability.” You can view Cohen's submission here.
