FOUR Kingsley School sixth-formers have won through to the finals of the National Science and Engineering competition.
John Hodgson, Luke Cann, Sam Walder and Ashleigh Clayton will be showcasing their project "GRAVITY: Dispensing of Bad Guys" at The Big Bang: UK Young Scientists' and Engineers' Fair in Manchester from March 11-13.
Their entry in the Senior Science/Maths category - a device to demonstrate in classrooms the effects of gravitational fields at different distances from the Earth - was judged to be "of a very high standard."
The Kingsley team will have an all-expenses paid three days in Manchester and are looking forward with great anticipation to the Fair, at which it is estimated their stand could be seen by around 15,000 people.
