A ‘glow’ glove designed by students has won an international design award.
Students from Brentwood School created GoGlove and beat competition from more than 300 teams, some from as far away as China.
The group was presented with the Virtual Ventura award at a ceremony at the Design Museum, in London last week.
Their brief was to design a product centred around a journey that could be sold for £10.
They made a glowing LED glove designed to help cyclists when signalling in the dark, and was chosen for the top prize because of its innovation and use of modern technology to produce a marketable product.
