Congratulations to our ten FameLab Academy (a school’s initiative which seeks to revolutionise science communication) heat winners who took part in the school final ths term and did fantastically well. The students were judged on the criteria of content, clarity and charisma by a judging panel and were watched by their class teachers and the entire Year 9 cohort. The judging panel was blown away by the quality of all the presentations. Each was interesting and engaging and full of excellent science. Watson Moir’s talk on the Mariana Trench won him the bronze award. Mark Daniell’s talk on nuclear fusion earned him silver. But it was Ted Barnetts’s talk on the science of roller coasters that had both judges and the audience rapt as he took 1st place and went on to represent the School at the Gloucestershire final where he narrowly missed out on the bronze medal. We are extremely proud of all the students that took part.
