At the recent Celebration of Science Event at Eden Court, Charleston Academy’s S6 Science Prefects excelled in several categories. Their work assisting Mrs Pam Hamilton our Science Technician is outstanding. Every Wednesday at lunchtime Mrs Hamilton and the Science Prefects run a Science Club for younger pupils to inspire, enthuse and motivate them. The Club is part of our STEM (Science, Technologies, Engineering and Maths) projects and has received several grants and awards over the years. However Mrs Hamilton was delighted to see the students recognised for their part in the club.
The students won in two categories – winners of the Watt’s Watt Challenge and the prestigious Science Club of the Year for the North of Scotland, awarded by the Scottish Council for Development and Industry. They will now be put forward for the Scottish Final to be held later this year. Read more about the work of our lunchtime Science Club.
