“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world” Louis Pasteur
You could find this and many other inspiring quotes scattered all around the school during our Second Annual Science Fair!
Our Science Department had prepared quite a treat for all Y9 and Y10 students with many presentations, hands-on experiments, games and debates to prove that #SCIENCEISWONDERFUL.
The day was filled with spectacular scientific experiments presented by the faculty and students, such as:
cold light and light emission in the dark room,
- wood carving using high voltage electricity to develop Lichtenberg patterns,
- glowing red hot fireflies,
- oscillating Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction,
- enzymatic reactions using enzyme immobilisation technique,
to only name a few!
Two most popular activities this year turned out to be: the blast furnace experiment on a match head and the dissection station for mammalian organs!
The second part of the programme was dedicated to experiencing other extracurricular projects dedicated to Science, such as ‘Bioplastics’ prepared by our Sustainable Futures Club, ‘Medical Shadowing’, ‘Medical Charity’ and ‘Writing and publishing an article’.
The busy day was finished off with the Oxford-Style debate on a topic: ‘Space colonisation is immoral and should be forbidden.’
What an amazing day, convincing us all that Science is indeed wonderful and can be so much fun!
