Celebrating National Science Week

18 March 2016

To celebrate National Science Week, we held a number of events within School. The Science department conducted lunchtime experiments, challenging the students to make as many rubber bands as possible.

On Wednesday, we held a video call with an explorer currently working in the Arctic. He told us about his work and the type of experiments he carries out, including climbing inside a glacier to take a number of tests. Following this, the students asked questions regarding global warming and how he adapts to live in such an extreme environment. The students asked some very clever questions and were surprised by some of the answers given.

Thursday saw two Chemical Magic Shows, which we annually hold on for local primary school children. We welcomed over 200 pupils from 7 schools through the course of the day which proved, as usual, to be a huge success.
