SPoC Judging 2012

The SPoC team were pleased to have the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching (The University of Sheffield), Professor Paul White, to help with the difficult task of selecting the winners from the high standard of poster entries.

2012 saw more regions participate in the challenge including many schools from East Anglia. As always there were a great number of entries from the Yorkshire region offering a variety of investigation topics.

The Olympics featured in many of the posters together with a variety of cross curricular themed investigations. Of particular interest was a study titled "Do children go to bed later on weekends than on weekdays?". Based on a survey of 40 children the results clearly showed a different pattern in bed times with 8.00pm being the most popular mid-week bedtime and 9.00pm being the most popular weekend bedtime.
