News ‘Excellence Award’ for Godolphin Biologists 09.07.2021

We are delighted to announce that Sophie, Mariella and Alex have received an ‘Excellence Award’ for their entries in the ‘How to Build a Human: Design a Card Game’ national school challenge.

In the midst of the country’s third lockdown, Lower School students responded to the call to shine a spotlight on the Human Cell Atlas project by designing an all age card game with the support of Godolphin’s Sixth Form biologists. Working together on the project over Google Meet, the experience highlighted the power of teamwork and the value of creativity in a process which tested the students’ perseverance and resilience as they navigated the challenges of building their very own cell-tastic card game from scratch.

Sophie, Mariella and Alex received some fantastic feedback on the creativity and educational value of each of their entries from the judges. A special mention must be made of our Sixth Form mentors – Rojin, Olivia and Anneliese – for their help with their projects.
