A team of students from Hans Price Academy has been shortlisted for a national final.

Adam Karas, Jakub Trybull, Brandon Truman, Josh Pitt and Luke Hashem could appear in the Design Ventura challenge final next month.

Ten school teams from across the country have been shortlisted for the eight slots.

School students were challenged to create a well-designed product which improves everyday life and can be sold in the Design Museum shop, in Kensington for £10.

The boys created Plate Mate, a fun attachment for holding your toast on the side of a plate to make more space and keep it from getting soggy.

Design and technology teacher Mike Jay said: “I am absolutely thrilled for the students. They have worked extremely well as a team from early conception of the product to final design and build.”

The team will find out their fate in a few weeks’ time.
