Join our Science Club – Tuesdays 3.15-4.15 pm
Each half term we will be running a different six-week Science Club.  In the first half term we are looking for 15 keen model makers.

Using our new Physics modelling kit you will build some really spectacular models and devices, such as a wind tunnel, flying wing glider and a Mars robot.

Firstly students will be given the opportunity to make simple machines that will represent an amazing set of tools that can be applied in the real world to engineer marvellous things.  Students will then find out what they can do and how they work.

This will be hands on building and testing models you have made.  Taking part in this club will be fun and give you a better understanding of the fundamental laws of mechanical physics.

A must for all aspirational Year 7 students!  Make sure you return the application form sent out with the Weekly News Bulletin this week to Mrs Greaves-Park in the Science office as soon as possible as places are limited to the first 15 students who return their slips signed by their parent/carer.
Mrs H Greaves-Park – Joint Head of Science
