British Science Week at Skinners’ Academy

9th April, 2018

Skinners’ Academy celebrated British Science Week (9-18 March 2018) with an outstanding collection of experiments and displays presented by eager groups of pupils from Year 7 to Year 10. We saw everything from edible water bottles to film canister rockets, from VR drones to magnetic fluids, slime to volcanos and rust inhibitors.

Our sixth form science students were an integral part of the event. They helped pupils set up and demonstrated their advanced knowledge of the three sciences with a heart dissection, cathode ray tube and iodine clock.

Parents and staff were invited to oversee and judge the event. Every entrant should be proud of the quality of work they produced and their ability to share it with the audience of around 50 people. Winners will be announced during the Academy’s end of term assembly with participation prizes and house points for all.

British Science Week, run by the British Science Association is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, featuring entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages. British Science Week in 2019 takes place from 8-17 March 2018
