Biology Challenge 2017
Biology Challenge 2017: Trinity students record their best year to date in the Royal Society of Biology’s competition!
This year, seven of Trinity School’s Year 9 best Biology students were chosen to compete in the Society of Biology’s Biology Challenge competition. The Biology Challenge is an annual competition run by the Society with the aim of developing and recognising knowledge and interest in biological sciences.
The triple science students that were selected met once a week to further their knowledge, discuss topical issues and educate each other on areas of biology that they found interesting. This year we studied and discussed topics including the amazing adaptations of animals and the suggested link between roast potatoes and cancer.
This is the third consecutive year that students from Trinity have entered the competition and they have surpassed expectations once again. Particular mention should be given to Grace Jain who is the first Trinity student to receive a silver award in the challenge which puts her in the top 15% of participants. This is an astounding achievement as Trinity’s group were up against both year 9s and 10s nationally.
Congratulations to the following students who were involved:
Kelsey Bartlett - Participation
Molly Calow - Commended
Harry Craig – Highly commended
Jai Chupreecha – Bronze award
Rebecca Jenkins – Bronze award
Harvey Bedwell – Bronze award
Grace Jain – Silver award
If you are a keen biologist currently in year 8 then watch this space next year!
