Work goes nationwide
Pupils from a school in Bath have told of their excitement after receiving critical acclaim for science journalism in a nationwide project.
Hayesfield School won the opportunity for pupils' articles to be exhibited at several museums around the country as well as being featured in a one-off publication. The girls, all aged 13 and 14, looked at the possible impact of acid rain on Bath stone.
Pupil Ella MacGregor said: "It's really quite astonishing how it's going around to different museums. It was all our own independent work and we would definitely like to do something like this again."
The work has been on display at the @Bristol complex, and the Science Museum in London, and will be at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry from today until Monday.

Pupil Madison Smith added: "It's quite cool that other people will be able to see what we've done."
Hayesfield was the only school in Bath to be invited to take part in the Climate Science Outreach Project, along with 48 other schools around the country.
Overseeing the project was science teacher Martin Somerton, who said: "Everything that came out of the articles was the girls' ideas and we gave them very little guidance. It was all volunteered work and the research was all their own.
"They wanted to make it relevant to local issues – we see beautiful Bath stone buildings every day and the girls really went for it."
