Josephine Hughes is runner-up of the "Unsung hero award" for her work in organising the RoboCup Junior competition

Josie Hughes, a Sensor CDT student in the first cohort, has been involved in organising the RoboCup Junior competition for some time. In 2015 she went to Hefei in China to help running the event.

RoboCup Junior encourages young people between 10 and 19 years of age to learn coding and engineering. Josie is actively encouraging students from Suffolk in the east of England to get involved. Her work has enabled students to take part in national and international robot competitions.

Her hard work behind the scenes has been recognised with the "Unsung Hero Award" as part of the Suffolk Raising the Bar Awards in June 2016.
