Princethorpe Shines The Spotlight On Science
Princethorpe College took part in British Science Week, a national celebration of Science run by the British Science Association.
Pupils enjoyed entertaining and interesting activities designed to highlight the importance of Science and inspire and engage the next generation of scientists.
Pupils in Year’s 7 and 8 took on Biology, Chemistry and Physics challenges in their Science lessons, getting hands on with experiments to help them make connections. They enjoyed hazard planning volcanic eruptions, investigating and analysing barn owl pellets, and designing and making balloon-powered cars. It was fantastic, hands on, explosive fun.
Pupils in the lower school also took part in a national poster competition on the theme of ‘connections’ with the best entries submitted into the national competition. The winners in school were: Year 7 – Lucille Watts, Bohdan Nicholl and Ellie Maffey, Year 8 – Amelia Hunt, Millie Lammas and Amy Robinson and Year 9 – Amber Sandhu. Congratulations to them all.
Comments, Head of Science, Emma Cooper, "British Science Week really allowed us to shine a spotlight on Science and provide a platform to engage pupils."
The College is committed to providing the best science teaching and learning in the region, our new 10 laboratory, dedicated Science Centre is nearly complete and it will inspire generations of Princethorpe scientists for years to come.
