The winners of the Greek final of the Diamond Challenge in America!

The winners of the Greek final of the Diamond Challenge International Entrepreneurship Competition, Alessandro Beggiora (B Lyceum), Marios Meletis (B Lyceum) and Stelios Michailidis (IB1) represented Greece and Pierce in the International Final, had an outstanding presence, won a cash prize and gained unique experiences.

The idea of the Pierce students (Green Spark) is to create a phone case that solves the problem of an uncharged mobile phone, especially in emergency situations! The device works by turning a crank on the back of the case, which results in the phone’s battery slowly charging from the energy generated by the dynamo inside the case. In this way, renewable energy sources are introduced into our daily life, with a significant positive impact on the environment.

The final was held at the University of Delaware, USA, from April 23 to 26, 2023 and the students were accompanied by the Economics Teacher and Club Advisor Mr. Michael Theodossopoulos.
