A few weeks ago, d’Overbroeck’s teacher Jaimie Tarrell was invited to present at a science conference held at Vilnius University in Lithuania. Jaimie, Head of Biology in our Sixth Form, ran an excellent workshop (involving attention-grabbing maggots!) with award winning science students from across the country.
At the event d’Overbroeck’s made links with the Prienai ‘Žiburys’ Gymnasium in Lithuania and this week took part in their school’s online conference. Three d’Overbroeck’s A level students presented findings from their Extended Project research at this conference along with guest speakers and other students from around the world.
The three Upper Sixth d’Overbroeck’s students presenting were:
- Joseph on What is the true value of sharks to humanity?,
- Micke on An Architectural Portfolio,
- Molly on The price of a bee’: an exploration into how we value pollinators and how best to conserve populations.
All three presentations were highly praised by the conference organisers and judges and Micke’s was given an award for the quality of her research and findings.
