Christine Pettitt in Year 9 has been awarded second place in the junior age group in this year’s Triple Helix Science Writing Competition, which received a total of 58 entries.
The Triple Helix is the University of Cambridge’s chapter of a global forum for science in society run by students at over 29 of the world’s leading universities. It aims to improve the standard of debate on the interaction of science and society.
Christine entered after Science teacher Mrs Reynolds received information about the competition and passed it to students. After lots of thinking, planning and several rewrites, Christine submitted her entry.
She was delighted to discover she had been awarded second place for her essay, ‘Thinking our way to a greener world’.
