British Science Week is predominantly a grassroots celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths with thousands of events and activities organised in schools, in communities and by a whole host of cultural organisations, businesses and other venues. It is a fantastic way to grow imaginations of our young people and show the brilliant potential of the scientific subjects.
The theme for this year’s British Science Week is “Change”, encouraging young people to think about and investigate the changes happening in the world all around us; from seasons and climate to materials and energy. It is also a chance for young people to consider the changes they can enact to have a positive impact on the future.
As part of British Science Week, Wardle Academy’s Science Department organised a range of activities and resources to inspire and educate our young students.
Our Year 7 & 8 students have taken part in:
- Do Now Quizzes
- A Poster competition
- Citizen Science Penguin Watch
- Photography competitions.
As well as throughout Science lessons, our STEM club and our Eco club, students have also been treated to a ‘Dynamic Demo’ by our Mr Mik, who did an excellent job of pushing the imaginations of students by delivering an intense demonstration of some of some powerful chemical changes.
