JFS year 12 students Danny Flowers, Tomer duSautoy, Jordan Mizrahi and Oren Sheldon were the overall winners of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Bill Bryson Prize 2013, writes Sally Patterson.

The young scientists competed against hundreds of  entries to win the prestigious prize.

Entrants had to creatively answer the question ‘How does science keep us healthy?’ The winning entry was an entertaining music video of the four teenagers performing under the name ‘Vitamin Vigilantes’.

Student Danny Flowers, who wrote and recorded all the music for the video said: “We were absolutely ecstatic when we found out we had won the competition. We decided to enter because we thought it would be fun and I love being creative, but we also thought it would help us with our applications to university.

“We were confident that our entry was good but certainly didn’t expect to win the whole competition.”
