Something fishy going on in Science club!
Run by Mr Randall and Mrs Lam, our thriving Year 7 and 8 Science Club meets on a Wednesday evening. At the club, students who are interested in Science have the opportunity to try out new experiments and tasks. When the students were recently dissecting fish, they had support from our Sixth Form Science Students who helped mentor the students and set up the hands-on activity.
Mr Randall said: “Our students really enjoy coming to Science Club and it is fantastic that they can draw on the experience and knowledge of our Sixth Form students. I was really impressed with how the students handled the dissection of a fish – it was quite a gory activity with a pungent and overpowering aroma throughout the Science lab, but this didn’t deter the students who very carefully removed fins and even the eyes! Thank you to Cora and Lewis for guiding the students with this activity.”
Year 7 and 8 students are very welcome to come along and try the Science Club which meets from 3:30-4:30 on Wednesday evenings, in JS05.
