Pupils have the right for­mula

Science suc­cess

West Lothian Courier - - Courier View - Deb­bie Hall

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.”
