Hove Park Scientists make a big bang at awards ceremony in Crawley
Hove Park’s Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) returned from The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair with two awards.
It was an excellent day for the Hove Park Scientists at the Hawth in Crawley, as they picked up one first place and one runner-up award.
The team were the winners for the south-east region of the Institute of Physics Award for Physics and were runners-up in the regional heat of the National Science and Engineering Competition.
Mr O’Grady said: “Our intrepid scientists did such a great job today representing Hove Park School in a mature, knowledgeable and confident fashion in front of some senior members of the local science and business community.”
They were the proud recipients of certificates and cash prizes for the school after modelling Mars Rovers with Lego and programmable robotic units.
They had built and tested them during their after-school science club, led by Mr O’Grady, and presented their findings at the fair.
As well as the judges, the stand was visited by science programme Brainiac’s presenter Jon Tickle, who was very interested to hear about the project.
The team have now been put for- ward to the national final in March 2014 in Birmingham.
