Learners wow judges with innovative ideas

Pictured receiving their prizes from Dr Ajay Bissessur are Grade 8 learners, Yaseer Nunkumar and Yasa Aiyer who won first prize for their project on the effects of different coloured light on plant growth.

SCIENCE Week at St Benedict School was filled with excitement as learners presented their impressive science expo projects.

The Grade 8 to 11 budding scientists from the Life Sciences and Physical Sciences learning areas, intrigued staff and visitors with their projects.

The learners showcased their scientific research and impressed the many highly acclaimed judges from UKZN, as well as science teachers from local schools.

The judges were captivated by the science learners’ exhibits which ranged from the use of fertilisers, genetic engineering, floating farms, understanding photosynthesis, water surface tension and magnetic repulsion to enzymes and the use of antacids.

The learners will now go on to compete at a provincial level at the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists which takes place in mid-August.
