The final Science Fair of the year was another roaring success, with many outstanding entries from our Year 7 and 8 pupils. The quality of the entries was outstanding, with pupils demonstrating plenty of originality and coming up with a number of unique and beautiful presentations.

Technology was a strong theme throughout, with a number of robotics entries impressing the crowds.

First place in Year 7 was won by Oliver Rayner, whose in-depth look at soil samples in different regions of Europe gave a great insight into the effects of climate and vegetation on the soil and its suitability for growing different types of plants.

First place in Year 8, and the overall prize, was won by Jonathan Crane, who demonstrated a superb knowledge of astronomy in his presentation of the life of our sun. Jonathan also coded his own computer animation of the Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram, which describes the properties of different stars, and showed how the sun will change over the course of its life.

A huge well done to all of our entries and we look forward to another fantastic year of science when we return in September.
