Liverpool Life Sciences UTC was recognised for the second year running at an annual awards ceremony hosted in Liverpool earlier this month.
The school and sixth form college were named as an award winner at the Educate Awards ceremony held at the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool, picking up the award for ‘Eco School Project of the Year – sponsored by Vivark’.
The award for Eco School Project of the Year category was awarded to the UTC for the ongoing aquaponics project with Farm Urban. Students have been working with a team of PhD students from the University of Liverpool to deliver an inspiring and innovative Aquaponics enrichment project which has provided a unique opportunity to engage with varying methods of sustainability and research.
Liverpool Life Sciences UTC were also recognised as runner-up in the Science Project of the Year category, for the work surrounding the Innovation Lab project focused on ‘Bio-prospecting’ and the search for new antibiotics.
As the first school in the UK to specialise in Science and Health Care for 14 to 19 year olds, Liverpool Life Sciences UTC reaches out locally and nationally to members of the scientific community to provide its students with vocational education pathways.
Principal Phil Lloyd said:
“It was an honour to have our school recognised at the Educate Awards for the second year running. The award is a further testament to the dedication of our staff and students and their passion to succeed.
“Our partnership with Farm Urban has provided a unique experience for students to explore varying methods of research that will support their future career choices and I am extremely proud of what we have achieved.”
