Students Attend British Science Festival

Last week, Birmingham University hosted the British Science Festival all week, which involved a huge number of events and activities. On Tuesday, a group of Year 9 students attended 2 lectures and a careers session geared around different aspects of Science. They learned about how the body copes with high altitude and how these changes in physiology could be used in the treatment of medical conditions. They also learned about the genetics of superheroes, and how mutations could lead to superpowers. Students from President Kennedy volunteered to go on stage in both lectures and helped the lecturer to demonstrate their points admirably.

On Thursday, Year 11 students took part in “The Big Science Quiz” along with 25 other schools from the local area. They also attended a careers workshop afterwards to see where a career involving Science could take them. Post 16 Physics students also attended a lecture about particle physics and gravitational waves. This included building a table-top model of a particle accelerator, learning about finding black holes using lasers and the mysteries of the early universe.

Many thanks to all of the students who attended these events, and benefitted from seeing not only a university environment but how Science can further your education and future.
