Hampton’s aspiring scientists showcased their talent at the 2021 Lower School Science Fair. 

Teams of pupils from First, Second and Third Year entered projects ranging from quantum tunneling to disproving gravity, as well as generating electricity from fruit and investigating alternative fuel for cars of the future.

Physics teacher and organiser of the event, Mr Bailey Cook, praised Hampton’s young scientists for their creativity outside the classroom:

There were some really inventive projects in this year’s Science Fair and it was very difficult to choose our winners. Leander, Ollo and Alex’s prototype drone was particularly impressive and the boys displayed excellent decision-making and perseverance. Third Year pupil Kessan investigated combustion engines, a topic pupils don’t encounter until Upper Sixth. Kessan answered the judges questions with confidence and enthusiasm. Well done to all our young scientists!

Congratulations to our winners and well done to everyone who took part in this year’s event.
