LILLEY HAILS SCIENCE SUCCESS FOR SIR JOHN LAWES
Harpenden MP Peter Lilley has offered his congratulations to four pupils at Sir John Lawes School who have won a place in the National Science and Engineering competition.
Elizabeth Barrett, Christopher Booth, Christopher Eaton and Robert Tink designed, manufactured and tested a device for the RAF that makes it easier for aircraft to tow radar decoys which can help counter missile attacks.
Peter Lilley said: “It is a terrific achievement to reach the final stage of such a prestigious competition. Congratulations are due to everyone at Sir John Lawes who helped devise and bring this project to completion.
“It required a deep understanding of science and innovative ideas to come up with such an impressive entry.
“Science, technology, engineering and maths are key to the future prosperity of the UK. This competition is a great way of helping to find the scientists and engineers of the future and also encouraging pupils to get more involved in these subjects at school and beyond.”
The entry from Sir John Lawes School will be judged at the Big Bang Science Fair in Manchester in March next year.
