Year 7 'My Science' Project

03 July 2020

Throughout this year, year 7s have been working on a My Science project on a science related topic of their choosing. The girls complete their research independently and can present their project in any way they like.

There was a wonderful range of projects submitted including homebrewing, an investigation with red cabbage indicator, advise on how to look after your teeth and an extensive project on the periodic table to name a few.

Well done to all of the girls who have completed projects this year, it was fascinating for the Science staff to read through them and we learnt a lot of new Science we hadn’t seen before!

In order to achieve a gold award, the project must be very well presented and thought provoking project. Information may be presented in a variety of ways and will show an in-depth understanding of the topic studied. 

This year the girls achieving gold awards are as follows:
