On Thursday 18th January the Science Museum Outreach team joined us to perform some excellent science-based shows for Years 7- 9. Years 7 and 9 took part in the ‘It Takes Guts’ show where they learned of the journey of food through the digestive system. There were plenty of screeches and grimaces as the students watch footage of a camera travelling from the mouth to the rectum! Years 7 and 8 learnt about the properties of materials and atomic structure in the ‘Material World’ show where they watched a jelly baby combust and a hydrogen balloon explode! The students (and teachers) had a great time and we hope to see the Science Museum Outreach team again in the future.
