Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

Pupils from across the Buck­ing­hamshire area are be­ing in­vited to de­sign the school sci­ence lab of the fu­ture for a chance to win £20,000 worth of lab­o­ra­tory fur­ni­ture for their school PUPILS from across the Buck­ing­hamshire area are be­ing in­vited to de­sign the school sci­ence lab of the fu­ture for a chance to win £20,000 worth of lab­o­ra­tory fur­ni­ture for their school.

Tal­ented young sci­en­tists, de­sign­ers and en­gi­neers have just un­der one month left to sub­mit their fu­tur­is­tic de­signs as part of a com­pe­ti­tion run by ed­u­ca­tion in­te­rior fur­ni­ture spe­cial­ists In­nova De­sign So­lu­tions.

In ad­di­tion to the main prize of the chance to trans­form their school with state-of-the-art lab­o­ra­tory fur­ni­ture, the win­ning team will also take home a £1,000 prize to share be­tween them or £250 for an in­di­vid­ual en­try.

The com­pe­ti­tion, which is open to 11 to 16 year olds, aims to dis­cover how to­day’s pupils think sci­ence teach­ing and class­rooms will change over the next decade or two.

Di­rec­tor at In­nova De­sign So­lu­tions Melanie Laing said: “We’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to see­ing what stu­dents think Buck­ing­hamshire’s school sci­ence labs will look like in 20 years’ time.”

The com­pe­ti­tion is open un­til Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 27 and a panel of in­dus­try and aca­demic ex­perts will judge the en­tries.
