Science Week goes with a bang
Published on 15/03/18
Young scientists at Jane Austen College were fizzing with excitement as they celebrated British Science Week with a packed programme of hands-on activities.
The students got stuck into a practical experiment to make glue out of milk, took part in a workshop focusing on the global water crisis, and tested their science knowledge in class quizzes.
Staff and students also collaborated on plans to make the college more eco-friendly.
Running from March 12 to 16, the week had the theme of ‘exploration and discovery’ and saw students in all year groups getting involved in the laboratory-based fun.
The annual event, organised by the British Science Association, aims to get young people across the country involved in a celebration of science, technology, engineering, and maths.
Jane Austen’s head of science Rosie Bonnington said: “Our students showed their passion for all things scientific and took part in the activities with great enthusiasm.
“We’re excited to be inspiring the next generation of chemists, biologists, and physicists, and judging by the success of this week it looks like science in East Anglia has a bright future.”
