On the 22nd of January the Science department took 155 of our year 8
students to Birmingham’s Science museum – Think Tank.
It was a fantastic day out and allowed the students to interact with
hands on activities and exhibits that are
closely linked to the curriculum this year – including combustion,
recycling and the body systems.
“My favourite bit of the day was making the robot play the drums
as it’s not every day I get to program a robot.”
“I really enjoyed the section with the interactive body and loved
seeing the real human brain!”
Our students also had an expert led session on Forensic
Investigators, where the students had the chance to take their
own fingerprints, and pretend to be forensic scientists, putting
clues together to solve the jewellery heist.
“I enjoyed working through the evidence and working out who
did it.”
The students had a brilliant time and the feedback
from the Think Tank staff was about how engaged
and polite our students are and how they are a
credit to our school!
