The evening, which took place on Friday 11 February was a resounding success, with a team from Horndean Technology College winning the top prize with their carbon footprint tracker app idea.
Five teams were shortlisted for the event which was attended by the teams’ parents, teachers, The Portsmouth News and our panel of Dragons.
