The winners of Resolution IT’s inaugural ‘Design a Gadget’ competition were announced at a special prizegiving ceremony at the Digital Greenhouse earlier this week.
To celebrate its fifteenth birthday, Resolution IT teamed up with Digital Greenhouse to find Guernsey’s most innovative young inventors. Schoolchildren from years three to six were tasked with designing a gadget that showed ingenuity and flair, with hundreds of students submitting entries.
Jane Van Der Watt, a year six pupil at Hautes Capelles, was awarded the first prize of a Nintendo Switch Lite for her original ‘Well on Wheels’ design, comprising solar panels and all-terrain wheels.

The second prize of a Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite was awarded to Lily Farrell, year six at Forest School, for her ‘Portable Sausage Roll Maker’ and Holly Sebire, year four at Hautes Capelles, won third place and a Sphero Robot for her ‘Comfort Robot’ design.
Every winner also received a Resolution IT backpack full of art supplies to inspire their ongoing creativity.
Prizes of a 3D printing pen were also awarded to each year group favourite, including Noah Le Noury, year three at Blanchelande; Evan Babbe, year four at Forest school; Emile Cavignac–Taylor, year five at Notre Dame and Thomas Troalic, year six at Hautes Capelles.
Haute Capelles was awarded the prize for the school with the most entries receiving £500 for submitting an impressive 140 designs.
