Each school displayed their projects in different competing age categories and answered questions from the judges as they came around to inspect their work. There was a real buzz, and the children were eager to demonstrate their knowledge and passion of science through their practical enquiries.

The youngest winner in the ‘home’ category, Jackson, from St Stephen Churchtown Academy Reception Class, explored which sweets caused the biggest explosion in a bottle of Coke.

In LKS2, Charlie and Lila from Treverbyn took 1st with their question ‘does gas weigh?’ and Treverbyn also took Gold in the UKS2 category with their heart rate investigations.

The fair wrapped up with a spectacular, high-octane rocket show from the amazing  which left the children inspired and full of more super science questions!
