Once again this year, UKAEA Dounreay sponsored the children’s essay competitions as part of the Science 03 Festival held in Caithness in March.  The prizewinners in the primary section were Canisbay Primary School and Crossroads Primary School primaries 6 and 7.

Their prize was an expenses paid trip to the Dounreay Visitor Centre. They enjoyed a display from the Constabulary police dog section, took part in a junior quiz and, on their way back to school, stopped off at Ormlie playpark in Thurso.   UKAEA Dounreay's Pat Kieran, a founder member of Science O3 said “Well done to all the young scientists who took part in the competition.  The standard was, as usual, very high, and made for some very interesting reading.”
