Top of the Class

A TRIO of girls made top of the class by winning a place in the national science and engineering competition.

Hutchesons’ Grammar school youngsters Anilah Sadiq, Hannah Jassemi and Heather Gibson secured their place with a project to determine how different genres of music affect teenagers’ maths, English and visual skills.

They now go head to head with finalists from across the country in an attempt to claim one of the UK’s top science and engineering honours for young people.

The winners of the UK competition will be announced at the Big Bang: UK scientists’ and engineers’ fair held at the ICC London ExCeL in March.
