In celebration of National Science Week, running from 15 – 23 August, students across the College had the opportunity to participate in an exciting array of Science-related activities during their break times, in addition to their regular classroom science lessons. 

Dr David Hughes, Head of Faculty Science was pleased with the turnout of the week’s event. 

“Science Week is a great way to encourage students to possess an interest in science pursuits,” he said. 

“It encourages young people to become fascinated by the world in which we live and sets the foundations for a lifetime filled with scientific thinking, discovery and of course learning.” 

Some of this week’s interesting activities included: investigating hair follicles, fingerprints and the splattering of (artificial) blood at a mock crime scene, building DNA, shooting water rockets high into the sky, looking at the sun using solar scopes, versing teachers at Kahoot, as well as engaging in the Ocean Rift Virtual Reality experience. 

This past week proved to not only be incredibly educational for the students, but it also enabled their scientific interests to be sparked.
