Lessons came to life for gifted students as they took a trip to a science festival.
Year 8 students were able to get hands-on practical experience at the University of Cambridge event. They completed a treasure hunt through the city to look at different parts of buildings and their history, as well as looking at Braille maps to learn about diversity. The day also included a lecture on the science behind how your mind plays tricks on you.
Emily Platts, Gifted and Talented co-ordinator, said: “The idea of the trip was to inspire our students with science in a different learning environment. The enrichment experience was a reward for their hard work in lessons and gave the students an introduction to University life.”
