It’s time for The Educate Awards! MerseySTEM sponsor Science Project of the Year
The Science Project of the Year Award recognises schools that have developed a science based project during the academic year of 2014-15 providing an opportunity to develop an innovative and effective approach to encouraging pupils to engage with science.
MerseySTEM Managing Director Michelle Dow, said: “It is an honour and a pleasure for MerseySTEM to be a sponsor for the Educate Awards. The awards recognise so many areas of education, the scope of categories is amazing… and now they’re spreading their wings across the North West! MerseySTEM are all about facilitating and promoting STEM, what better way then to give recognition to schools who are excelling in Science.”
Schools shortlisted for MerseySTEM’s Science Project of the Year Award are:
Bishop David Sheppard Primary School
Liverpool Life Sciences
Now in its fourth year, the awards have grown due to the volume of entries and increased demand from schools to take part and win one of the prestigious education accolades.
Kim O’Brien, executive editor of Educate Magazine, said: “Last year’s Educate Awards were a huge success, we saw a big increase in not only the number of entries but the standard too; the ceremony at Liverpool Cathedral really showcased the innovation, creativity and passion that is evident throughout the Liverpool City Region.”
“We’ve had schools outside of Liverpool express great interest who are keen to be involved in the awards, so with this in mind, we have accepted entries from schools and colleges in the boroughs of Lancashire, West Lancashire and Cheshire West and Chester. This expansion marks an exciting time for the awards, we hope this will again raise the bar and make 2015’s awards the best yet.”
Good luck to all nominated schools and congratulations to Educate on an amazing event, we’ll see you on the red carpet!« Back To News
