The design of a waterproof, cardboard tent called ‘Isopod’ won the senior engineering award at the Big Bang Fair last year, the UK’s largest celebration of STEM for youth.
The foldable, dome-like design was created by teen Lily-Mai Spinks as an alternative to the plastic tent. She was inspired after discovering that many tents are abandoned on festival grounds each year, and wanted to help reduce the environmental impact.
