Water Explorers are going to the National Science Competition Finals 2019
Posted by Corbridge Middle School, United Kingdom on 5 October 2018

Corbridge Middle School Year 8 Water Explorers were at the NE Big Bang Fair and Bring it On event at the Beacon of Light in Sunderland this week. Three teams presented their water-based CREST Award science projects. The judges asked some really difficult questions but our pupils handled them magnificently well! After an exceptionally exciting day came the award ceremony. Two of the teams, 'Dyeing to save the Aquatic Environment' and 'Growing Halophytes; plants in salty water' were announced as winners of the regional competition and will be going to the National Science Competition finals in Birmingham in March 2019. Great work Water Explorers!



Completing Challenges will help you climb the Water Explorer leaderboard. In addition, your project work can be used to support CREST and Eco-Schools Awards.

CREST Award (British Science Association)
Each year, over 32,000 CREST Awards are undertaken by 11-to-19-year-olds, giving them opportunities to explore real-world science, technology, engineering and maths projects in an exciting way.

Use Water Explorer Challenges as a basis for a CREST Bronze Award. To get the Award, you’ll need to spend at least 10 hours on your project. Find out more about CREST Bronze Award here.

Eco-Schools Award
