Maes Garmon Science Department, under the leadership of Catrin Tudor, has won a national award for their science project focusing on three different ways to research the effect of light on photosynthesis.

The science, technology, engineering and mathematics competition was introduced by the Urdd in 2016 at the Flintshire Eisteddfod and local high school, Ysgol Maes Garmon, scooped the top prize for year 7, 8 and 9 students.

Head of KS3 Science at Ysgol Maes Garmon, Catrin Tudor, said, “We plan to spend the money on ecological equipment, such as lux meters, chemical equipment such as ph indicators and physics equipments such as transformers.”

The competition is sponsored by the Welsh Government’s ‘Focus on science’ campaign and will again be offering a prize to the winning schools or colleges in 2017.
