STEM Discovery Week 2019, 6th -15th March, is an international initiative that encourages projects, organisations and schools across Europe and around the world, to celebrate careers and studies in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
As part of recognising this initiative, Miss Williams organised NHSG’s very first Mother and Daughter Science Fair, inviting girls and their mums to work on a Science project of their choice and display their findings at an afternoon exhibition of all-things Science on 9th March.
The variety, and quality, of the research was fantastic, covering a vast number of topics in great detail; from chemical reactions, electricity-producing lemons, homemade hovercrafts and everything in-between – it was clear that girls and their Mums had invested a huge amount of time and energy investigating their topic.
Mrs Waton, Head of Science at Senior School, was in attendance to award prizes for the best work, a task which the rest of the teachers did not envy! It was an extremely difficult decision but winning prizes were awarded to Lily Roberts, Amy Sutherland, Elizabeth Voysey and Wizda Qasim. Runners-up were Jasmine Bell, Poppy Charlton, Charlotte Hardie and sisters Caitlin and Emily Doran.
Well done to all the girls and Mums who took part.
