On Monday 22 November, 34 Academic Scholars from First Form to Lower Sixth took part in the Scholars’ Exhibition Evening. Attended by pupils, parents and teachers, the event was held in the Dining Hall where the Scholars each exhibited the independent research they had conducted on such diverse topics as Nietzschean philosophy, Japanese theatre, global economics and quantum theory.
The overall winner of the event was George (Fourth Form, Vanbrugh), whose outstanding presentation on WENERGY – an innovative new form of hydroelectricity (see page 19) was directly related to this year’s Scholars’ Programme theme of ‘Climate Change’.
Special mentions also go to the runners-up, Danny (Lower Sixth, Queen Anne) and Claudia (Lower Sixth, Swift), whose respective presentations on racial bias towards the death penalty and the intersection between beauty and illness were also highly commended. The next stage of their projects will see the Scholars write up their findings as academic articles for publication in the Scholars’ Journal.
