Big Bang 2015

nigel200On Fri­day 20th March, 15 stu­dents from Yr 8 were for­tu­nate enough to spend the morn­ing at the Dis­cov­ery Park, Sand­wich for The Big Bang event organ­ised by Kent & Med­way Stem. With their maths hats on, stu­dents were able to get involved in lots of dif­fer­ent activ­i­ties and demon­stra­tions that showed the prac­ti­cal appli­ance of sci­ence and maths in a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent ways, both now and in the future. Amongst other things, our stu­dents were able to explore the maths of jug­gling and wave motion, try their hand at foren­sics and 3D print­ing, and watch a fas­ci­nat­ing lec­ture on air, water and fire with real life exper­i­ments, chem­i­cals and big bangs!
