This week, our year 7 pupils, Mr Murray, Mr Tilley and Miss Barnes are taking part in the finals of The Big Bang Fair 2015 at the NEC in Birmingham. There will be over 200 projects on display from thousands of entrants all over the UK.
Our school project looks at how does ocean acidification through atmospheric pollution affect the shells of marine molluscs and is the product of many months of hard work by the pupils and Mr Murray.
Pictures from the event are displayed below and will be updated as they come in!.
Update: We have now all returned from the Big Bang event. It was a truly amazing experience and we were the top 200 finalists from over 1000 entries all across the UK. We competed against mainstream colleges, schools and private schools and performed admirably. We were judged on our science work and our communication skills and the pupils spoke to many judges, teachers and other pupils. Myself, Mr Murray and Miss Barnes are extremely proud of how they performed and they were a real credit to the school and themselves. Mr Murray and his Big Bang team have worked hard and had their work displayed at the Big Bang Finals – something that most schools never get the opportunity to do. Well done!
