James Dyson Award - National Winner
ROADFIX: In a 2020 report by Marsh, accidents from poor road maintenance were found to be one of the highest costs for towns. According to the Global Health Security Agenda data, in 2020 potholes were the major causes of accidents, especially amongst smaller vehicles. The Roadfix tool repairs small defects on the road’s surface. It also offers advertising space for companies by imprinting their logo on the pothole and sponsoring the repainting, supporting local communities.

Student Service Design Challenge 2021: Bronze Winner
MiYo: It is an online platform enabling children and their caregivers to act together towards a sustainable and extended lifecycle for toys by creating a local network of exchanges. It helps users understand the value of used toys through a new perspective while including children in the decision-making process. Toy waste is often overlooked yet plays a considerable factor in environmental pollution. As this industry grows along with consumerism, most toys end up in landfills. Toys are commonly discarded after a few months of usage, even if they are still in perfect condition. This happens because kids quickly lose their interest and toys lose their value over time. Our challenge was to help our users understand the value of used toys through a new perspective, while including children in the decision-making process, consequently increasing toys’ lifespan and creating a loop in reusing them
