Charlotte Weeks, aged 12 took home the winning title in the 12-14 category for her 3D model of the panther chameleon at the weekend for the Nancy Rothwell Awards.
Charlotte is a credit to our school and a number of people commented on her obvious ability. One of the representatives from ITN said she was someone to watch. Having won an age section in a national competition Charlotte has been inspired to take it further and is keen to encourage others in the school.
Charlotte’s science teacher, Eve Anderton said: “I was delighted to hear that Charlotte was successful with her entry.
“She is always so interested in her biology lessons and works very hard to consistently produce work of a high standard.”
Timothy Pond said the model showed a “tremendous level of understanding”. He said: “Being different and thinking about using a completely different media that is highly original deserves to be commended.
“The model has been beautifully and carefully constructed and has a witty humour that reminded me of creator of Wallace and Gromit Nick Park, as well demonstrating excellent anatomical understanding.”
The competition was judged by Andrew Crook MBE FRSA, Lucy Eckersley, and Dr Grace Sim from the Royal Veterinary College, Tom Ireland MRSB from the Royal Society of Biology, Timothy Pond from the Zoological Society of London, and Professor Susan Standring FRSB from King's College London.
Well done Charlotte!
