Congratulations to 4th form student John Simpson and his four-member team from Vere Technical High School in Clarendon who have developed a solar-powered robot to assist small farmers with watering and fertilising their crops.

The robot was the 2019 winner of the Katalyxt Youth Innovators Workshop and Competition. Vere Technical finished ahead of Steer Town High School, 2nd place; while Jamaica College and Guy’s Hill High School tied for 3rd place.
