Science Fair

Competing in the Fortis TCI National Science Fair

We are extremely proud and pleased with the efforts of Jiya Tyagi and Tom Phillips during the Science Fair Quiz. Our brave and hard working duo competed against 19 schools and narrowly missed the finals by one point. Overall the team came in 6th which was a tremendous achievement. They worked incredibly hard in the weeks  before the competition to study a range of science topics.

Anyone visiting our project stand would have been greeted by three very enthusiastic scholars of science. Jiya Tyagi, Tom Phillips and Samuel French spent a full day at the Gus Lightbourne Centre talking to the judges, public and media about their project.

Learning about the modern day Dinosaurs was the highlight of the topic; the children were thrilled to take care of their own Rock Iguanas.
JUST LOOK AT WHAT THEY DID!
