Congratulations James!

Before joining the Eagle Lab family as our lab engineer in sunny Salford, James Medd worked closely on some amazing projects with MadLabs, a grassroots community innovation organisation based in Manchester.

On 15 June at The 2017 Big Chip Awards (longest running digital awards in the UK and the largest outside of London) James was rewarded for his hard work, as he and MadLabs picked up the award for the 2017 Best Tech for Good Project (Best Tech for Good Project | The Big Chip Awards).

It was a tough category:

  • Connected Hull with Connected Hull
  • Dinosaur with Fairtrade Foundation and the Co-op with Growing Stories
  • MadLab with Make Stuff
  • BBC micro:bit partnership with BBC micro:bit

The judges comments spoke volumes, “Encouraging hands-on use of technology and breaking down the barriers between the tech that's transforming our lives. Exemplary engagement with communities across the North”

Congrats James, a fully deserved piece of recognition for the great work you have done and continue to do daily.
