Student Baldev Mehta will see his work displayed around college, on T-shirts and other materials after winning a logo-design competition.
His design was chosen as the branding for STEAM Champions – a new students society that will promote science, technology, engineering, art and maths education.
Design students across the college were tasked with creating a logo for the society and judges made Baldev the winner after being impressed by his “bold design illustrating the meaning of STEAM in an engaging way”.
Two students were highly commended by the judges - Anna Hopkinson, who submitted a “creative and unusual design” and Carla Empereur-Cerruti whose submission was praised for its “subtle use of colour encompassing all aspects of STEAM”.
Assistant Principal Anita Lall presented the certificates along with Baljit Panesar from FE Art.
Winner: Baldev Mehta
Highly commended: Anna Hopkinson with Baljit Panesar and Anita Lall
Twenty students will be recruited by the new student society to be STEAM Champions, which will see them be the College STEAM representatives in the community and internally. They will identify themselves at events by wearing T-shirts emblazoned with Baldev’s winning design which will also be reproduced on posters and various promotional materials.
Helen Seymour, STEAM development officer at Bradford College, said: “There are huge benefits to students in joining the STEAM Champions group. They will get opportunities to meet local STEAM employers, training and experience in science communication and to hear from guest speakers from industry and academia.
“They will visit STEAM industries, help at STEAM clubs in primary and secondary schools and they will also deliver activities in college during National Science Week and will have the chance to volunteer at events including the Bradford Science Festival and at the National Science and Media Museum. STEAM Champions may also represent the College at other STEAM events including Bradford Festival Green Man – Einstein’s Garden, Cheltenham Science Festival, Glastonbury, Edinburgh Science Festival and the British Science Festival.”
