Budding researchers shine in stunning science fair

May 6, 2022

Young researchers showcased their outstanding projects at the seventh annual Monmouth Science Fair.
Year 6 pupils at Monmouth Prep School were joined, at The Blake Theatre, by children from Raglan, Kymin View and Llandogo primary schools.
The creativity and range of the children’s projects were remarkable, including measuring lung capacity, bacteria in face masks and whether the weight of a ball can affect how far it travels.
Event organiser, Dr Sion Wall, Science Teacher and Co-ordinator at Monmouth Prep School, said: “The high standard of research at the science fair never fails to amaze me.
“It was fantastic to see many of the teams conducting experiments on the day so that the visitors and judges could be part of the research.”
Pupils from Raglan Primary School won the first prize and took the runners-up spot, while teams from Monmouth Prep School finished in third and fourth places.
Dr Wall, who has been carrying out science outreach workshops in local primary schools, added: “Well done to everyone who took part and to parents who came along to support.
“It was wonderful to see the children at Raglan Primary School recognised for their hard work and I cannot wait for our next science fair in 2023 when, hopefully, even more local primary schools will be able to join us.”
