26 May Year 7 trip to Imperial College
Two of our year 7 science classes took part in an exciting, high profile, event at Imperial College Friday 20th May, accompanied by Dr Doyle, Mr Edmonds, Mrs Gill and Mr Dy. They attended a lecture given by Dr Simon Foster about space travel, which was also broadcast live on the internet. Our students witnessed amazing science demonstrations and asked a number of excellent questions that caught the attention of VIP guests who were present at the event.
The highlight was when our students and teachers were given the opportunity to meet several European astronauts, including the UK’s very own Helen Sharman, who is the first British astronaut as well as the first woman to visit the Mir space station.
