Prep Scientists Impress at Moncrieff Jones Society Competition

The annual Moncrieff-Jones Society Science competition was announced this week after an incredibly talented bunch of Prep pupils made films on ‘their favourite period of scientific history’. The society is a cornerstone of Science in the Senior school and promotes in depth research and presentations of topics beyond the realms of the curriculum.

All entrants had to adhere to two main rules: the films were not to exceed five minutes in duration or 50 years in historical time. The children who entered were judged by the Moncrieff Jones Society, headed up by Mr Keyworth, Head of Science at the Senior School and the Lower Sixth Form MJS Presidents, Lisa and Xavier. All aspects of presentation skill, clarity of information, visual display and accuracy of the science were carefully judged by the panel.

Antibiotics by Clemmie

Artificial Intelligence by Piers and Alex

Big Bang Theory by Jasper

Heliocentric Theory by Mia

Marie Curie by Tahlia and Cora

Railways by Matthias

Robotic Engineering by Marble

Telecommunications by Cicero

The judges were incredibly impressed by all entrants and praised the skills, passion and energy with which all delivered the diverse topics of information.

Mrs Hills-Matthews praised all entrants’ videos as they were so detailed, with some wearing incredible costumes, using specialist apparatus and multiple locations. She awarded every entrant a beautiful gemstone for their hard work. Mr Keyworth and Lisa presented the runner up and winning prizes. In second place, Piers and Alex won with their film on AI and were delighted with their crystal growing kits…and our winner Mia won a model of the solar system – which was incredibly befitting to her film on the Heliocentric Theory.

Well done to all who entered for the quality and detail and effort shown in all the films, we are incredibly proud to have so much talent from our budding scientists!
