Science Open Day

To celebrate the blessing and official opening of the new Science Block, the Science Department organised a fun-filled day for all pupils (and staff). Each year group, from Nursery to Year 13, was involved in Science events. We started the day with Nursery to Year 2 experiencing the ‘Wiggly World’. They were able to interact with snakes, bearded dragons, scorpions and giant snails.

Years 3 to 9 experienced a Chemistry show where they saw demonstrations with liquid nitrogen,   frozen oxygen and dry ice. Years 4 to 10 entered the explorer dome where they experienced the wonders of the night sky, the solar system and star formation.

Years 11 to 13 attended an evening Science lecture, where Dr Kathryn Burrows talked about the need for Atomic clocks and Dr Eva Lana-Lola used mouse genetics to explain congenital heart disorders associated with Down's Syndrome. As you can see from the pictures, the girls had a lot of fun; a fitting way to celebrate the Science Block and showcase how we are able to use the new facilities.
