The Science department celebrated British Science week 2023 with a full week of activities that were highly participated. From Year 7 to 6th form, a very high number of students participated in the different activities, that were delivered by our enthusiastic science teachers.
Ms Mpofu-Tavugara (AKA Professor Starlight) delivered a session called Methane bubble where she, literally, set arms (of the volunteers) on fire. Note, no one got injured.
Mr Bradley (AKA Professor Crackalackin) transformed our Science labs in space room controls, and the courts into our own rocket launch base. Loud explosions were heard.
As Science is not only fire, explosions and launching rockets, Ms Gaskin decided to bring some Biology and do some heart dissections. As a bonus, a brain was also provided for the activity.
Using a less conventional fuel, Mr Dingsdale (AKA Payload Commander Sherlock Ohms) used Alka seltzer tablets to power rockets made by students.
Mr Tewari (AKA Professor Subject Catalyst), decided to go big and squishy and invited students to produce elephant toothpaste (we can assure no one used them on their own teeth).
