More than 40 primary and secondary schools from across the GLF Schools family will be at the Royal Holloway University in London at the end of March to exhibit an array of amazing science projects they completed at home.
The event on March 30 will also welcome businesses and organisations involved in STEM subjects; Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Students will have the chance to take part in a variety of activities designed to encourage their enthusiasm for the subjects.
A keynote speaker this year will be the university’s Dr Andrew Casey who proved to be a huge hit last year with his fire and ice demonstrations and discussion.
“We are so pleased that the number of participating students continues to grow for the science fair. This year, our fourth, will be the biggest yet and we are all looking forward to seeing the huge variety of projects being exhibited,” said Daniel Welch, Primary Science Leader at GLF Schools.
“Students must take a great deal of credit because all the work is done outside of school, in their own time and on their own initiative and the competition is really hard."
Each participating school holds its own science fair and the winner from each will head to the London university for the grand final.
“We continue to be amazed by the high standard of the projects and all the students have obviously worked very hard to be at the final. The complexity of the projects gets harder each year and we are always so impressed with each and every entry,” added Mr Welch.
“Inspiring and encouraging young people to have a life-long love of STEM subjects is at the heart of what we do. There are so many wonderful career options open to them with these subjects, and if their projects are anything to go by we will have some future names to watch,” he added.
Projects taking the honours in recent years have included a study of tooth decay, how to make gases at home and the chemical composition of coffee.
