(Photograph) - MSPs call for more applied science to be taught in schools to spark pupils' interest, these boys from the High School of Glasgow need little convincing. Nathan Owens (left), Kenneth Murray and Rajan Jandoo (with Jake Lever, not in the picture) have won the Scottish heat of the Institute of Physics' "Paperclips" competition - so-called because entrants are only allowed to use items found in the average home. Despite the look of total engagement with their work, the High School pupils took inertia as their project, using a range of household items from eggs to paint pots. Photograph by ALLAN BOVILLATOM
