A Felsted student received an ‘Outstanding Science Work’ prize in a Big Bang Regional Science Fair at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford.
Year 7 and 8 science enthusiasts at Felsted Preparatory School entered the fair in July to showcase their CREST (Creativity in Engineering Science and Technology) projects.
George Harvey, 13, was awarded the CREST Prize for ‘Outstanding Science Work.’
The Braintree resident’s project, entitled ‘The Study of Exoplanets’, focused on plotting graph data from an American University on light intensity as the exoplanets passed in front of the sun.
He has donated his prize money to inspire other pupils to aim for excellence in science.
The Big Bang is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK.
Thirteen other pupils also entered the competition and received their BA Crest Bronze Award.
