Science Challenge Winners

Well done to our team from Ely College who won 2nd place at the Swavesey Science Challenge!

Congratulations to Lucy Whittaker, Christopher Atkinson, Abigail Staines, Aren Clark, Harriet Cree and Sam Barfield; with a huge thank you to Mrs Batchford for coordinating the event with our students.

The Swavesey Science Challenge has been running for over 20 years and is aimed at KS3.  Students have a two hour time slot where they have to complete 3 different practical scientific challenges.  This year, this involved water rockets, cooking an egg with an exothermic reaction and testing for vitamin C. They also had to complete a science quiz all within the two hour time limit. The team worked extremely well together and have won £75 for the science department.
