Woodmill High School, Dunfermline - Finalists in STEMNET 2013 UK Awards

November 2013

Congratulations from all the team at Global Science and Global Web to Woodmill High School, Dunfermline, following the announcement that the school has been shortlisted for the award of Most Dedicated STEM Club with another 2 schools in the UK.

The STEMNET awards aims to recognise the UK's most dedicated and inspirational people for motivating young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) has kindly offered a trip to CERN for the winners of each award. Winners will be announced at the STEMNET awards Ceremony taking place at the House of Lords on Tuesday 26th November, hosted by Lord Sainsbury.

Nominated by Kevin McKeever at Global Science, Kevin commented that he was delighted for the pupils and staff at Woodmill High who have worked tirelessly over the last two years to have a fantastic STEM Club within the school that is accessible to all students. The enthusiasm and motivation is just fantastic, and all the team at Global Science wish Woodmill High every success at the final.

This is the third consecutive year, that a nomination made by Global Science has made it to the final at the House of Lords in this UK competition operated by STEMNET.

Last year, Scott Bryce was runner up for Most Dedicated Teacher in UK, and the STEM Club at Broxburn Academy won the most Dedicated STEM Club in the UK. Prior to that, James Murphy at St Mungo's High School in Falkirk, won the coveted Most Dedicated Teacher in the UK.

Given that the competition covers all UK schools, this is marvellous achievement and recognises the tremendous amount of effort and fantastic STEM work happening in East of Scotland, where Global Science manage the STEMNET contract.
