As we looked at the lights in the far distance last night, we all reflected on our achievements of the week. We’ve missed home, conquered fears, laughed hysterically and not stopped running around since our arrival. We all enjoyed a ‘dance off’at the disco. https://t.co/gFYCm4aKNm

Budding scientists from Merstham Primary head to university for finals

We had a fantastic time with our budding scientists at this year’s brilliant science fair where some fascinating projects were on display.

Merstham Primary School  joined around 400 pupils from across the GLF Schools network to show some brilliant science projects, which were all produced at home, in the contest’s final held at the Royal Holloway University in Egham, Surrey on Monday.

Projects were incredibly diverse and ranged from ‘Why don’t polar bears get cold?’ to ‘Life and death of planet earth’ and ‘which brand of kitchen roll is the most absorbent?. Each was beautifully presented and had been thoroughly researched.

More than 30 businesses also took part in the finals with displays and stands at the university to encourage our pupils to look at future careers involving the STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

The companies ranged from the Royal Society of Chemistry to the world-famous Brooklands Museum and many offered some great hands-on exhibits. There were also keynote speakers who inspired us all.

“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.

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