U3 Science Crest Award

U3 pupils took part in a CREST Discovery Award day in house teams. Their challenge was to design a hand wash station for a small village school in Kenya to try and stop the spread of infectious disease. Alongside the challenge of producing a model of their idea from recycled rubbish, they also had to design and present education materials aimed at 8-11 year olds to help educate the children on why they should be washing their hands.

All pupils worked extremely hard in their teams throughout the day and we were hugely impressed by their final designs and presentations. Certificates will be awarded on return to school in September.
