During Science Week there will be a number of science based activities that will take place during lessons for Years 7, 8 and 9. See below on details of these activities.
All Year 7 students will take part in making their very own bug hotel during their science lessons in Science Week.
This will enable students to explore some natural habitats of small insects and will provide an opportunity to reflect on our impact. They will look at the connections between insects and the natural world, and discover the vital role they play in the balance of ecosystems.
At the end of the week, students will then be able to take their bug hotels home.
All Year 8 students will take part in growing crystals during their science lessons in Science Week.
This will enable students to explore different methods of separating mixtures and allow them to look at the connections between the size of the crystals and the rate at which they grow.
At the end of the week they will then be able to take their crystal creations home
The College will also be delivering a careers-centred session that will give Year 9 students an opportunity within their science lessons to research and investigate a wide variety of science-based career profiles.
Examples include; Astronomer, Forensic Scientist, Paramedic, Marine Biologist, Chemical Engineer, Veterinarian/Veterinary Nurse, Epidemiologist and Laboratory Technician.
This will provide useful information including average salaries, career paths and progression, and related roles that students may not have considered.
