Monmouth School Girls’ Prep pupils Stacey and Lucy were the runners-up.

Young researchers showcased their impressive projects at the fourth annual Monmouth Science Fair.

Pupils at Monmouth School Girls’ Prep and Monmouth School Boys’ Prep were joined, at the Blake Theatre on Thursday 25th April, by two pupils from Raglan Primary School.

And the Raglan duo, Gabby and Sophie, were highly commended for their research into why bigger musical instruments make deeper sounds.

The judges, all professional scientists, were delighted by the level of science and the children’s understanding of the experiments and results.

Girls’ Prep pupils Stacey and Lucy were the runners-up for their research into how a person’s age impacts on their heart-rate and reflexes.

Boys’ Prep pupils Freddie, Tom C, Sam C, John and Neil won the best project prize for their investigation into how sound is affected by liquids of different densities.

Girls’ Prep pupils Ffion and Connie, who investigated the acidity in sweets, and Kathryn, Maisie and Grace, who used chromatography solvents to analyse sweets, finished joint third.

Event organiser, Dr Sion Wall, Science and Technology teacher and Co-ordinator at Monmouth School Boys’ Prep, said: “The standard of research at the science fair keeps getting higher every year.

“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.

“It was wonderful to have two students from Raglan Primary School despite it being their Easter holidays. Gabby and Sophie were highly commended for their outstanding piece of research.”
