Three Wellingborough pupils picked up prizes at a science celebration in Milton Keynes.

Sherya Ganatra from Sir Christopher Hatton Academy, Hugh Baxter from Wellingborough School and Beth Haynes from Wrenn School were all recognised for their brilliant work in physics and the contributions each has made to their classes.

Professor Monica Grady from the Open University enthralled the audience with a fascinating talk about how to land on a comet, drawing on her recent experiences of being part of the Rosetta team which helped to land robotic European Space Agency lander Philae on a comet 317 million miles from earth last month.
