Gold Crest Awards

27 September 2018

NGHS congratulates our Year 13 Gold Crest students who presented the findings from the scientific studies at Harper Adams University last week. Mrs Dainty (Coordinator) and Mr Scott attended the presentations and were very impressed with the quality of research and the students’ presentation skills. From the nutritional value of the food on our plate to the quality of ram spermatozoa, there was a wide range of research topics and we are very grateful for the excellent support from colleagues at Harper Adams University who kindly offer this valuable opportunity to NGHS students.

 The topics this year were:


Optimisation of Propidium Iodide Staining in Ram Spermatozoa          


An investigation in the protein content of silage; comparing 2 methods of protein determination on both fresh and dried samples.


A comparison of different methods of protein and fat determination on colostrum samples.


Investigating the nutritional compositions of popular lunchtime choices


 Well done to all our participants.
