Maria Fidelis Catholic School FCJ

Big Bang National Finals!

A group of 7 Year 9 pupils from Maria Fidelis Catholic School, Camden, won the Junior Prize for the Institute of Physics Award for Practical Project Work at the regional Big Bang Fair in July 2013. These pupils will be presenting their work at the Big Bang Fair National finals at the Birmingham NEC from 12th -14th March 2014.

 

Their project called 'Does your choice of hair dye matter?' aimed to see which type of hair dye on the market weakened hair the most. This time the pupils will be testing their products on real hair as a comparison to their first round where they used imitation hair.

Pupils were also given the challenge to raise funds themselves to cover accommodation costs and together with a generous donation from Set Square Surveyors, Farringdon, they have successfully do so. We wish them the best of luck with the final stage of the competition.

 

 

A group of 7 students in 8L have recently worked after school on a science project called 'Does your choice of hair dye matter?' The project aimed to see which type of hair dye on the market weakened hair the most. The project was presented at the Big Bang Fair and we are proud to announce that they won the Junior Prize for the Institute of Physics Award for Practical Project Work. The students showed dedication, enthusiasm and creativity and represented Maria Fidelis with pride. Many congratulations!
