Year 11 Science: Live! Trip
On Friday 28th February, twenty year 11 students attended the Science Live! GCSE lectures.
We were treated to a series of lectures by eminent scientists like Professor Jim Al-Khalili, who spoke about time travel and Professor Robert Winston, who outlined his work with human fertility at the Apollo Theatre.
There was an audience of 1,500 students from across the UK and presentations from a GCSE examiner, who gave helpful tips for exam success.
Our students were a credit to our school, especially Millicent, who asked a thought-provoking question to Professor Winston. It was an enjoyable and interesting educational experience where students developed their cultural capital by seeing where cutting-edge science is used in the real world.
