A GROUP of students from Fareham have won a top award at a regional science fair.

The team from Cams Hill School won an award for a project that will help the disabled become more active.

They were runners-up in the regional heats of the junior engineering and technology category of the National Science and Engineering Competition at the Big Bang South East science fair in Crawley.

Susannah Collins, Josephine Geoghegan, Mark Prince, Oliver Reeves, George Streten, Jamie Moore and Georgia Hedges were praised by the judges for their excellent teamwork.

Their project was aimed at designing a low-cost and easily set up product that would increase opportunities for wheelchair users to participate in sport, both formally and informally.

The Big Bang South East fair, which was attended by almost 2,000 young people from across the region, was the culmination of Crawley STEMfest 2012, which had been taking place in schools and colleges since May.
