Students Look To The Future For British Science Week
/ Categories: News
British Science Week gave us a glimpse of what the future could look like as we celebrated it across school at the start of March.
This year’s theme was “innovating for the future” and students had the opportunity to take part in tasks and competitions to practise their own creative skills!
Students got involved in the BSW poster competition, creating fantastic designs that showed what innovation means. Our Science Department also organised two additional competitions at the Academy. The first, inspired by Back to the Future 2, was to make predictions about what the world will be like in 2040. Student prophecies included the discovery of alien races, time machines, engineless cars and even living on different planets! They were also encouraged to create their own Rube Goldberg machine, with a prize for the most successful one.
At the end of the week, Head of Science Mr Campbell hosted a special assembly that included an exciting experiment for students to watch.
Mr Campbell said: “The past twelve months have highlighted the impact of Science on our lives like never before. As ever, our students have been really engaged with British Science Week and it's been great to hear their enthusiasm and ideas to help create a better future."
