300 students from around the region took part in this year's University of New England Growing Regional and Agricultural Students in Science (UNE GRASS) Science Investigation Awards held at the University on September 10. Students had to first design and conduct their investigations and on the day explain their projects to scientists from UNE. They were judged on a range of  criteria  including  scientific  accuracy, interpretation  of  data,  and  how  well  they  presented  their  data.
 
On the day students presented over 200 projects to 36 scientists for awards totaling $4,550.
 
"The scientist and the whole UNE GRASS team were highly impressed with the great range of creative and clever projects which were presented on the day.  There is no doubt the quality of projects and the way they had been presented at this event has increased each year!" said Susanna Greig Science Education Officer, (UNE GRASS).
 
Duval students have a fine record over the years and 2015 was no exception with twelve students taking the opportunity to participate.  Well done to all those students who entered and congratulations to the award winners:
