Science Fair finals

Our amazing scientific superstars are heading to university in their lab coats ready to compete in a prestigious science fair.

They will be joined by pupils from more than 26 primary and secondary schools in  the GLF Trust and will visit the Royal Holloway University in April to exhibit science projects they have produced at home.

Business and organisations involved in the STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, will also be exhibiting at the event on April 1, and our pupils will have the chance to explore a variety of activities and demonstrations.

“This is the third year running we have held a science fair grand final event and it is getting bigger and better each time,” said Daniel Welch, Primary Science Leader at GLF Schools.

“The pupils taking part have already done extremely well and created some fantastic projects in their own time, with no help from their teachers, for the grand final and the competition is always really tough,” he added.

Each project won its place at the final by beating others at school and the standard this year was particularly high.

“We were amazed at the complexity of some of the projects involved and the students have obviously worked very hard to be at the finals. It is great to think we could be inspiring a whole generation of future problem-solvers,” said Mr Welch.

Winning projects over the years have included tooth decay and investigating friction and the fair is designed to encourage pupils to consider future careers utilising the STEM subjects.
