Pupils have the right formula
Deans Community High School pupils saw first hand the appliance of science.
Recently the school held a Science Fair, organised by the school’s S6 science ambassadors.
The fair included a showcase of projects completed over a period of six weeks by a group of nineteen S1 to S3 students.
Each group was mentored by a science ambassador throughout the project.
The event, a first for Deans, was very successful and well attended by staff, parents and the wider community.
The projects were judged by Roddy McKenzie and Richard Thorpe from Catalent Pharma Solutions, alongside Pauline Allison, headteacher.
All three judges were extremely complimentary of all the students involved and expressed how impressive and professional their projects and presentations were.
In the end, the winners were judged to be Erin Duncan and Ben Ritchie, both S1 students.
Pauline Allison said: “The fair was a resounding success and the science department are very proud of all the students involved.
“We hope that the Science Fair will continue to grow and develop each year as it is a fantastic way to celebrate the scientific abilities of young people in our school.”
