Science Club present Bronze CREST Award researchPosted on: 13/06/2018
Science Club students demonstrated impressive standards of oracy and scientific investigation when they presented their Bronze CREST Award research projects to a panel of professional scientists and engineers at the BP Technology Centre, Pangbourne on 12th June. The girls had been working on their projects for many weeks; firstly planning and carrying out their investigations and then putting together project reports to summarise their findings. The final stage was to present their work to an external audience. DGS has close links with the BP Technology Centre and the girls were very excited to be invited to give their presentations in the impressive venue of the main conference room at historic Bozedown House, the heart of the BP campus.
Each project was presented brilliantly and the girls gave thoughtful answers to questions from the judges, demonstrating a thorough understanding of their investigations. At the end of the morning the judges announced that all the girls had achieved their Bronze CREST Award with flying colours. The girls were also introduced to Debra Wilfong, Technology Vice President of BP, who spoke to them about the importance of STEM and the opportunities a STEM career can provide.
The teams and projects were:
Idun Christensen, Jessica Dubock, Tamsin Johnson, Carys Sharp: Team Pop 2 Mars
Antonia Boboc, Rebecca Harrison: Climbing Bean Pantheon
Fiona Bull: Mission To Mars
