The winning team of KM Bright Sparks 2017 from Simon Langton Grammar School in Canterbury.

This year the champions’ crown and £500 prize money went to pupils from Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar, Canterbury for their ‘Does Biodiversity Make You Happy?’ project. Their investigation involved testing more than 600 individuals to confirm a positive correlation between spending time in the school’s orchard and improved psychological and physiological wellbeing.
