Science staff accompanied all Year 9 students to the Waterside theatre on Friday 19th September to experience the 'Ministry of Science' show. . The show was developed by the creative team behind the ‘ Brainiac Live’ & ‘Guinness World Records Officially Amazing Science Live’ and proved to be an educational show with an anarchic twist. pupils thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon :
Taleylah Coyle 9D:
"they performed scientific illusions/tricks - many of them included explosions! these involved liquid nitrogen, balloons, cannons and hovercraft construction".
Jarvis Bell 9D:
" the guy put flowers in liquid nitrogen at -189oC and they crumbled! My favourite experiment involved the mixing of hydrogen and air in different amounts in balloons - then exploding them!".
