Rewrite Headlines – Competition

A  competition has been launched to help primary school children understand how the latest research becomes headline news in the media.

The ‘Rewrite the Headlines’ initiative will work with schools to assist young people to better understand what research is and how it gets reported in the media. They will get a better understanding of the journey from “lab to headline”, so they can more confidently judge any research stories they might come across. Equipping children to evaluate what they read and hear is a valuable life skill.
