Hamptonians showcased their talent in the annual Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) Fair held at Lady Eleanor Holles School.
Working in teams, projects were designed to answer the questions of tomorrow, with pupils from across the year groups demonstrating their innovations from motion trackers to rocket launches and sound waves to an Arduino controlled car.
Third year scientist Anirudh S (3F) told us about his rocket project:
Our project was a model rocket which we had launched before the fair. On the day of the STEM Fair, we had many visitors from Hampton Prep, even Five appearing at once! They were very intrigued by our rocket and were in awe of our slow motion and normal time videos.

Physics teacher and organiser of the event, Mr Tim Wilson, praised the young scientists for their creativity:
Well done to all those who participated, you made the judging process really challenging as there were so many excellent projects. I hope you all had a lot of fun working on them and I look forward to seeing your projects next year!
