Student biologists showed off their artistic and laboratory skills to celebrate British Science Week.
Inspired by this year’s ‘Our diverse planet’ theme, Year 12 students were tasked with using their scientific knowledge to design a poster featuring a new species which could adapt to different habitats on Earth with prizes awarded for the most creative.
