Earlier this month, 120 primary students brought their amazing science projects to Alexandra Park School, hub for the Highgate & Muswell Hill Primary Partnership. Many schools had already run their own internal science fairs, with the winners bringing their projects to represent their schools.
I wanted to say how great the Science Fair on Thursday was. It was an excellent day, really well organised and the children had a fabulous time. Thank you so much for organising it!

“The standard of the projects was incredible,” says Henry Hammond, Science Director at APS and co-ordinator for the partnership. “Members of APS leadership team, as well as APS science staff, were highly complimentary of the project displays, as well as the enthusiasm and knowledge of the students. APS staff and the five STEM ambassadors judged each project, with my able Y10s and Y12s supporting the event through science busking and running the scoring spreadsheet.”
“In the afternoon, we were treated to a fantastic science show from the brilliant Dr Andrew Szydlo,” explains Henry. “He covered some high-activity chemical reactions as well as the physics of liquid nitrogen!”
Every student received a medal and there were many prizes, including prizes for teamwork. The overall winner was a project from Coldfall School looking at the life cycle of stars.
“It was a great day and everyone involved should be proud,” concludes Henry “Our thanks to The Ogden Trust for supporting our ongoing work with these primary schools and The Big Bang in School Fair for supporting the day.”
The children had a lovely day, they were raving about it all the way back!
