Young talents lead new projects

Students showed off their talents and diverse interest pool at Scarborough Sixth Form College’s latest course exhibition.

As part of the Extended Project, learners explored a topic of choice to demonstrate planning, preparation, research and independent working.

The fruits of their labour were displayed at the fair which attracted a large number of visitors.

Naomi Mensah wowed the crowd with her juggling skills.

Her Extended Project explored the art of juggling; a talent learned from her mentor, deputy head of Scalby School, Andrew Wappat.

Other projects included Samaa Musa’s Can You Hear Colour? and Henry Turner’s work into the science of boat design - a project he hopes to study further at the University of Southampton later this year.

Visitors to the exhibition were also impressed with special effects make-up by Gemma Beresford as well as Jessica Bedford’s project which examined whether eyes really are windows to the soul.

Stewart MacDonald, head of the Extended Project qualification, said: “The students have produced a remarkable range of exciting and challenging projects, and the project work is great preparation for both employment and university.”
