Moncrieff-Jones Society Science Competition
On behalf of the Moncrieff-Jones Society, a science society in the senior school, we had the honour of introducing a science video competition to the Prep School. The pupils’ task was to research a scientist or scientific discovery that changed the world and make a video talking about their findings.
We were stunned by the amazing quality of the videos, as well as the depth of scientific knowledge displayed. There was an impressive number of topics, ranging from Isaac Newton, x-rays, and blood circulation. Most entries exhibited all the qualities we were seeking: creativity, focus, rigour, sophistication and presentation so it was intensively difficult for us to make the final decision.
The top prize was awarded to Elliot W (Year 5) (Climate Change and Evolution). The three highly commended prizes went to Mia M (Year 5) (The Molecular Structure of DNA), Alexander J (Year 4) (Nikola Tesla), and Seb C (Year 6) (Fundamental Particles).
Finally, a big well done and thanks to everyone who entered. We look forward to hearing the achievements of all these incredible young scientists!
