The Science Department was at full force this week for British Science Week. All tutor groups created balloon-powered cars as part of their Tutor Challenge! Top of the class were Rowling PW and Branson KH with excellent designs.
Students also came to visit the Science Department at lunchtime for acid fizz mess, creating lava lamps, racing lotus flowers, paper airplane and helicopter competitions. There was even a science photobooth.
Lessons also had a science week theme, with classes getting messy with our viscosity of fluids practical, making holograms, testing trebuchets and creating hovercrafts!
Year 7s also had the opportunity to visit Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium, where all students got to explore the hands-on exhibits, watch a planetarium show and have a go at a K’nex bridge building challenge!
All in all, a brilliant week was had by staff and students alike.
