Four students from Priestley College used their knowledge to identify organisms found in rock pools as well as using photographic evidence to answer questions on evolution ecology and adaptation.
Priestley finished sixth out of 24 teams from across the North West at the contest held at UCLAN.
“The competition was very strong so we are delighted to have finished so highly,” said Biology Tutor Dr Louise Norbury.
“All four students represented Priestley well and demonstrated an impressive knowledge of the subject.”
Students Emily Craig, Adam Griffiths, Scott Kingsley and Ellen Simpson each received a commemorative mug for their efforts.
