On Thursday 19 March St Augustine’s hosted an amazing Science Fair for the local primary school students to share their scientific work.Miss Rolfe (KS3 coordinator Science) organised the event along with Mrs Rodger (Holt Primary School) as a CSL project to bring schools together and to highlight the importance of practical investigation work in Science.
In the end nine primary schools, some with two groups, attended with their experiments, posters, results and photos to share – and their explanations of what they had done were top draw! From soap bubble boats to ice cream to natural disaster models – all areas of science seemed to be covered.
The teachers and students had obviously put in a lot of great work and this was shown through the professional presentations and posters.
Some of our own students had the opportunity to visit the displays – which was a little daunting for the primary schools – but they were very impressed with the level of detail and science knowledge on show. The school’s own STEM club were on hand to speak with the students and to share some of our own practical work which seemed to go down well especially the smoke rings from the Airzooka!
We would like to thank the estates team for helping prepare the hall, Mrs Phillips for her help with the preparation and the STEM club for their help running the event.
