British Science Week
Year 7 and 8 students carried out some project-based learning
During British Science Week this year, our Year 7 and 8 students carried out some project-based learning. The Year 7 students made some fabulous model aliens and designed amazing planets that were home to their aliens. They described the conditions on the planets and explained how their aliens have adapted to living on these planets.
The Year 8 students researched deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) – the blueprint of life! They made some wonderfully accurate models and carried out some research on the discovery of DNA as well as some of the scientific and technological advances that have led to extraordinary progress in the field of genetics and forensic science. Wonderful work from our Year 7 and Year 8 students – well done!
