They journeyed far, from Singapore to Paris! Team Lumos, which comprises of SP alumni Leong Hei Mern, Leong Hei Kern and Chernis Low, took part in the prestigious L’Oréal Brandstorm competition!
They designed a credit card-sized personal care product for men and created the prototype using 3D printing – something that Hei Kern is very familiar with. Hei Mern and Chernis were both from the Diploma in Perfumery and Cosmetic Science (DPCS), and their skills and knowledge acquired in SP served them well when they worked on the product. The team competed and won the Tech category in the national rounds, beating more than 100 teams from National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Management University (SMU) with their innovative idea and presentation!
After clearing the regionals, the team competed against 41 other international teams and won the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Award at the Finals held in Paris. They were also one of the top three in the Tech Category!
Hei Mern, who won the Young Cosmetic Scientist Award 2016 during her time in SP, is now studying at NUS. Hei Kern was a SP Diploma in Mechanical Engineering (DME) Gold Medallist from the Class of 2013 and is currently a Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD) student, while Chernis was the DPCS Gold Medallist last year, and is now studying chemistry and biological chemistry in NTU!
Congratulations to Hei Mern, Hei Kern and Chernis! Go #TeamSP!
