FOUR pupils at Ashington High school have won a trip to London after taking part in the British Council’s Big Science Challenge.
Year 9 pupils Charlotte Adamson, Sophie Chapman, Holly Stocks and Katie Wardlaw impressed judges with a vertical farming system, designed as a solution to water shortage problems.
They have won an all-expenses paid trip to London to present their ideas to an international delegation discussing ways to deal with water shortages in the Middle East.
Teacher Vikki Douglas said: “I am thrilled they have won the trip.
“They thoroughly deserve it.”
