British Science Week

British Science Week seeks to raise the profile of science and technology in schools and to show how important science is to everyday life. The pupils at Beech House have been imagining themselves as Antarctic explorers in celebration of British Science week. Pupils have been considering what items of clothing they would need to wear and planning how they could manage to consume 3,350 calories a day to ensure they would have enough energy to complete a research programme in the ice!                        During RS, Year 7 and 8 have been considering a quote from Albert Einstein: “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind”. They have voted on whether they agree or disagree with this quote and considered if science and religion can co-exist.         In PSD pupils have been debating whether microphones on mobile phones should be switched off at all times and if they could be considered an  invasion of privacy.                                                      During their trip to Wales, the Upper Prep and Year 7 classes took part in the Citizen Science activity, which is looking at the condition of beaches and public areas, to contribute to a wider research programme.                                                                                    Our more creative students are now busy using their findings from lessons and any other ideas they have to create exploration and discovery themed posters to enter the British Science Association’s annual poster competition.
