Bloomfield Pupils Win Physics at Home Competition

Two Year 11 teams entered this Northern Ireland schools competition, organised by Queens’ University Physics Department. 
It involves making a presentation on a physics topic so that it is simple enough for non scientists to understand.

As a result, FIRST PRIZE WAS AWARDED TO BLOOMFIELD and so was SECOND PRIZE

The winning team of Caitlin O’Reilly, Karen McClean, Sophie Stevenson and Louise Magill won a digital camera each and their presentation was entitled “Radioactivity Rocks Our Socks”

The second place team of Cara Bradley, Bethany Peacock and Lauren Mackey won Amazon gift vouchers of £25 with a presentation entitled “Equal and Opposite”

In addition, the school will be receiving a science presentation organised through the Institute of Physics

Well done to all involved and a big thank you to Mr McEvoy, team coach.
