Huge congratulations to Arwen on winning The FameLab Academy regional final yesterday!
The Famelab Academy was set up to revolutionise science communication in schools. Year 9 students, with support from teachers and a STEM mentor from either industry or academia, prepare a three-minute presentation on a scientific topic without the use of notes.
Arwen had already done extremely well making it through the heats and then winning the Westonbirt School final. She then delivered a fantastic presentation for the final on self-medicating animals including ants, bears, deer, elephants and baboons with great support from the rest of Year 9 and from Miss Rogerson.
Over 1600 pupils took part in the competition making Arwen’s victory extremely impressive. Everyone at Westonbirt is very proud of her and her achievement!
