3rd Prize at Inventor Challenge

PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL in Stranraer scooped third prize at the national finals of the "Be an Inventor" challenge run by Glasgow Science Centre with "School Stars", a board game based on school life.

The children took home 250 prize money to the school from the awards ceremony last week at the new Glasgow Science Centre.

Four children and teacher Ms Sheila Baillie represented the school at the ceremony and savoured their moment of triumph when, in a nice twist, "School Stars" was awarded the prize money by Kevin Mellett, a NASA engineer, as well as the sponsors Enterasys.

"The children were absolutely chuffed to bits",
she said
"and they are ready to make their first million. We have already entered into discussions with a company developing board games so who knows"?
