Magnetic Stirrer

Year 11 Chemistry students using the magnetic stirrer purchased using funding from the Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) Interest Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).
 
The BMCS is a group that convenes national and international conferences in the broad area of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical science.  The members of the group are very aware that the wellbeing of their industry has depended for many years on the supply of talented young chemists in the UK.  Their journey towards a career in this sector of chemistry starts during their primary and secondary education so it is most appropriate that the BMCS supports this phase of education where it can.
 
Our thanks go to BMCS for their contribution which will allow us to enrich the experience of our students in the immediate future and in years to come.

Year 14 Lego Presentation Skills Workshop

This morning, Year 14 pupils developed their presentation skills during a practical workshop. Pupils married their experiences from both Arts and STEM subjects, as they used Lego to create objects and persuasive language to justify their choices.

Year 14 pupils are busily preparing for their YPI Presentations in the coming weeks and, after today's skill development, competition is set to be strong between each form class!

Science Week 2016

Year 8 Science focus week took place after half term with all Year 8 involved in a variety of activities to highlight the relevance of Science outside the classroom and to the world of work in our local community- ‘World of Owls’ from Randalstown visited the school for an informative and really exciting presentation highlighting the variety of life with an amazing animal roadshow.

Pupils visited Invista to find out more about Lycra production, visited the Lough’s Agency to hear about the conservation work locally and others built robots, made rockets or watched a gruesome rat dissection. A sports Science themed workshop measured lung capacity and investigated exercise while the chemistry department held a couple of fun workshops. STEM Aware helped us out during our STEM club building and investigating the motion of toothbrush head robots!- please click to the gallery for the photos from each of the workshops during the busy week.
