Enrichment - Science Club and BA Crest Award
BA Crest Award
Following the success of the Y7 Science Club, the Science faculty was able to offer some Y8 students the opportunity to complete a BA CREST award at bronze level.
The BA CREST is a nationally recognised and fully accredited science enrichment scheme which is coordinated by the British Science Association and complements the Science curriculum at key stage 3. It is designed to allow young people to explore the real nature of science and technology by doing their own creative problem solving through mini research projects. The projects can be in any area of science and can be chosen by the students themselves (subject to approval by the Science faculty).
Congratulations to Holly Barnes, Jessica Lewis, Chyna Malcolm-Blythe, Sarah Kleist, Abigail Walters, Rebecca Graydon and Florence Rolston-Ashford for achieving the bronze CREST award for their creative science projects of fruit power and fairground rides and to Laura Watson, Hannah Ward, Molly Lambert and Harriet Hartley for achieving the silver award for their project on fizzy drinks.
Y7 Science Club
Science Club is held after school from 3.15 to 4.15 every Thursday in Lab 2 and is for any year 7 who wants to have fun with science. Don’t worry there are no tests or homework!
Each week we do a practical activity which has some link to science. So far this year we have done things like; Fake wounds for halloween, fire writing and making slime with lots more fun stuff to come..
Come long and try it out!
