Science week and science fair, June 2019

Have you ever wondered if turtles can detect colour? Or if you can make rocket fuel from sweets? These are just some of the interesting questions our Year 9 students were trying to answer for this year’s science fair. Throughout science week we had several special lessons and speakers for all year groups. Year 8 were investigating the kidnapping of our beloved lab technician Gerardo and had a visit from some actual CSI police who told them all about their techniques. Year 7 took part in an engineering challenge to design and create spaghetti towers. Years 10 and 12 had an inspirational talk from José Luis Casado Moreno, an engineer of telecommunication, about the importance of science and engineering in our lives.
