They got through the regional rounds in June and were entered into the above Final.

On the 19th November 2013, they came in 21st place out of the 56 scottish schools who competed.

They also beat all other public Dundee and Angus schools!

It had been many years since we had qualified for this competition.

The Final was held at the Glasgow Science Centre, which they had the opportunity to explore on the day.

We are very proud that the pupils had this opportunity to represent the school.
