Highly commended, 2012 University of Sydney Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize - Primary Charlotte Collier, Gemma Hicks, Saffron Mayn & Alenka Thomas Balgowlah Heights Public School "In the mid 1600s Anton Van Leeuwenhoek carved his own hand-held lenses to examine the cloth that he bought and sold for his business. As a hobby he used the lenses to investigate his surroundings. It was his cleverness and innate curiosity that led to the discovery of microorganisms using lenses that he made himself. The students of BHPS thought that this story was worthy of retelling because an everyday person discovered something incredible, proving we can all be scientists if we want to."
