Dr Richard Guest participates in ‘Dragons Den’ inspired KM Bright Spark Awards

Dr Richard Guest, Deputy Head of the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, recently participated in the ‘Dragons Den’ inspired KM Bright Spark Awards, whereby students from across Kent were invited to submit collaborative science projects using cross-curricular skills in maths, IT, science and engineering to investigate, innovate and invent.

The top ten initiatives were selected to compete at a Dragon’s Den-inspired final at Discovery Park, Sandwich in a bid to win trophies and a £500 cash prize. Dr Richard Guest participated as one of a panel of eight dragons quizzing the students.

Other panel members included: Bal Sandher of Hectic Lifestyles; Robert Crook of Pfizer; Dr John Dickinson of the University of Kent; Jane Abbott of Benenden Hospital; Karen Arnold of Golding Homes; Paul Gannaway of Betteridge and Milsom; and Kimberley Anderson of Discovery Park.
