The Bunsen Learners Win The Year 7 Science Family Challenge

02 Nov

On Tuesday 1 November, 26 family teams (pupil and parent) competed in the Year 7 Science Family Challenge. 

They watched exciting demonstrations involving fire, explosions and tricks of the mind, before tackling some challenging tasks across the fields of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. They had to apply practical skills and also answer challenging questions. Congratulations to all who took part and a special mention to our top three teams:

1st place - The Bunsen Learners
2nd place - Bow Ties Are Cool
3rd place - Pro-tons

The calibre of the teams competing was unbelievable with the winning team 'The Bunsen Learners' scoring a very impressive 50 out of a maximum of 57 points (after bonus points for team names and dragons were included).

Thanks also to our wonderful Laboratory Technicians, pupil helpers and Science staff who made the evening possible. We hope the pupils and parents all enjoyed taking part.

Look out for our inaugural Princethorpe College Science Christmas Lecture coming to the Clarkson theatre on Tuesday 13 December.
