A Level Science students reached the final of the British Science Association Business Education, Science and Technology (BEST) II competition last month.
Held at the University of Manchester, students Eleanor-Rose Pearce, Katie Brown, Abigail Higham-Day, Carly Hudson, Beth Fothergill and Scarlet Morris worked together to present their plan to a panel of expert judges.
Their project, impressively titled “Biodepolymerisation
”, was presented to a formidable panel of expert judges. The panel were: Dr Jane Garnett of JG Technology Management, Dr Paul Kemp, CEO and CSO of Intercytex Ltd., Dr Martin Henery, Enterprise Academic and Lecturer at the University of Manchester and Ms Heather Thompson, Director of IP Development and Partnering at the University of Manchester Intellectual Property.
A Level students Eleanor-Rose Pearce, Katie Brown, Abigail Higham-Day, Carly Hudson, Beth Fothergill and Scarlet Morris plan their final presentation with tutor Rob Moody, overseen by a judge.
Their presentations for Biodepolymerisation saw them reach the final of the national competition, with the judges expressing extremely positive feedback at each stage of their entry. Some of their glowing comments included: "
well coordinated", "presented good and thorough costings and market research" and "good at developing concepts during questioning".
Reaching the final of a national competition is a fantastic achievement and each student who took part did exceptionally well throughout the heats. It’s exciting to see students take on extra-curricular enrichments and even more so when it lends itself to bringing more diversity into STEM subjects like Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Biotechnologies.
