Scientists at St Albans’ Beaumont School win awards
TWENTY-three budding scientists from a secondary school in St Albans were recently recognised for projects ranging from examining the amount of vitamin C in orange juice, to seeing which cleaner is best at killing bacteria.
Beaumont School’s science department handed out CREST awards from the British Science Association to the talented youngsters from Years 8-11.
The pupils had attended a series of masterclasses after school to undertake the projects.
The awards, designed to encourage students in the field of science and introduce them to the work of real scientists, are a project-based scheme for science, technology, engineering and maths.
Pupils could investigate or design and make, research a subject, or design a science communication project.
