A half pint or two of science

On Friday I was privileged to act as judge for the Maiden Erlegh school science fair, where students from across the year groups had worked on topics as wide ranging as “the science of dragons” to “what is it like to be colour blind?”. I was really impressed by the standard of the presentations, the only shame was that I had to choose winners for each key stage – the students made my job very difficult!
