Rewards for research

29th October 2010 at 01:00

A sixth-year pupil at Dingwall Academy has been awarded a British Science Association Gold Crest Award for a five-week research project with Aberdeen University.

Rachel Earith was a participant in the Nuffield Science bursary scheme, which places senior pupils on university research programmes. Rachel's project included exploring the real-life experience of health professionals working at the scene of road traffic accidents. Her findings showed that young males were most likely to be involved in car accidents and that the majority took place in the afternoon and evening. She also found that crashes were four times more likely on rural than on urban roads. The university is working on revolutionary technology which could help to reduce deaths on rural roads.
