Young scientists head to drink finals
YOUNG scientists will head to the Netherlands for the finals of an innovation competition.
An all-girl team from St Andrew's School, Leatherhead, saw off competition from more than 100 students in a challenge to design a new energy-efficient, low-emission packaging scheme for a drinks manufacturer.
The Sci-Tech Challenge, run by ExxonMobil and Junior Achievement Young Enterprise Europe, was held at the oil and gas company's refinery near Southampton.
The girls will now take on students from eight other European countries at the three-day final in Rotterdam from April 18.

ExxonMobil community affairs adviser Sophie Foale said: "It's really exciting that students from St Andrew's will now be joining Europe's top young science buffs in the battle for the first prize.
"The Sci-Tech Challenge aims to highlight the importance of maths, science, engineering and technology, and the girls from St Andrew's have proved they've got what it takes to represent the UK in Europe."
St Andrew's narrowly beat a team from Therfield School at the qualifier on March 14, with a team from Applemore School in Southampton coming third.
