On Thursday, a group of Year 11 students travelled to London to participate in a GCSE Science Live! event. Pupils from all over the country gathered and listened to 5 famous scientists each talk about their field of study, gaining insight and building enthusiasm. Also speaking was an experienced exams officer who offered invaluable advice to students for when they sit their science exams.
The scientists giving talks were:
- Professor Dave Cliff, who looked at computer sciences and predicting the future of computers.
- Professor Robert Winston, speaking about fertility in humans.
- Professor Andrea Sella, who covered chemical processes.
- Professor Jim Al-Khalili, who explored space and time.
- Professor Alice Roberts, who looked at the stages of human evolution.
The day was a great success and the students all gained something from it.
