Year Ten Get Scientific In Manchester
December 21, 2018 @ 8:00 am - January 7, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
A group of Year 10 students enjoyed an educational Science visit to Manchester last week.
In the morning pupils entered The Great Hall at Manchester University where they attended a lecture by Science Presenter Neil Monteiro entitled “Game On.” During the presentation his self-designed arcade game character was brought to life, along with its own superpowers! The lecture was full of interesting scientific explanations, demonstrations and experiments; including one of our students using plasma to light up a fluorescent bulb in his hand.
The afternoon was spent at a different venue, the Science and Industry Museum, where students explored the new exhibition “Spark.” This installation introduced and developed ideas about electricity, from its humble origins to being an important part of our future. Additionally, pupils also got the opportunity to explore and get hands-on in “The Experiment Area.”
