On Tuesday 5th November, Years 7 and 8 took part in the first of this year’s Science Fairs. There were a number of excellent projects on show, demonstrating superb understanding of the different scientific concepts involved. The competition was incredibly tight in both year groups and the judges had their work cut out deciding between them!

The overall winner on the day was Emily Martin, whose project on factors affecting heart rate showed a superb understanding of both the cardiovascular system and the scientific method in general. Emily’s presentation was really well-presented and showed rigorous testing of her ideas.
