Why don't woodpeckers get headaches?

Congratulations to the winners of our research poster project competition. Students were challenged to research a topic of interest, and presented their findings in a visually appealing way. Students have developed research and referring skills that will be invaluable in their future studies, and have explored a range of physical and electronic resources, as well as visiting the University of Sheffield to further improve their knowledge of study skills.
