Mr Paul Rickard, Head of Science
The Woldingham community’s passion for science was illustrated by the large number of entries to our inaugural STEM Photography Competition, and its creativity by the wide range of photographic styles on show. The brief from Woldingham’s STEM Society was simple – submit a photo of anything linked to science, technology, engineering or maths.
The judging challenge fell to regular Woldingham photographer Kim Scott-Clark, to whom I am very grateful. I was delighted to announce the winners during assembly on Thursday 16 June. Highlights included a fantastic shot of the lunar landscape by Cici, Lower Sixth, who used a phone camera pointed down the lens of a large telescope, and a photo of the aurora borealis, one of nature’s most impressive sights by Sophie, Year 9. Isobel in Year 8 harnessed static electricity to create her winning photo, whilst Miss Cripps from the Biology Department won the staff prize for her rather graphic photo of a collection of sheep eyes bound for the dissection table.
Well done to all our winners and runners up. I can’t wait to see what our many STEM enthusiasts will come up with next time around.
