Pinelands students excel at the international science fair
We congratulate Joseph Gibbon and Matthew Redfern (both Grade 11) who recently won gold medals (80-100%) and were awarded Best Project in the Chemistry and Biochemistry category at the recent International Science Fair held in Gauteng last week. A total of 253 of South Africa’s top researchers and innovators competed alongside 17 international young scientists from Brazil, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mexico, Mozambique, Turkey and Zimbabwe.
Sarah Parker (Grade 11) received a bronze medal for her project in the Engineering category.
Their projects were selected as Technology Innovation Agency Winners out of a total of 270 at the ISF. The award includes an invitation to attend a one-week bootcamp, and the opportunity to receive funding to further develop their projects, supported by the Technology Innovation Agency.
We are very proud of these young scientists and of our Physical Sciences and Life Sciences Departments and their staff.
