KS3 Science Competition - looking for young inventors 

The winner of the KS3 Science competition is Joshua in 7R2 for designing the i-scarf. Which in a nutshell, is a heated scarf, powered by a pressure generator inside a shoe, each time you take a step. Joshua's entry was chosen because it generates power from kinetic energy, is environmentally friendly, has low manufacturing costs (if made), could easily be patented, can incorporate existing technologies and would be a popular Christmas present. His design was clearly presented with diagrams and a detailed description.

Science Booster Classes

Key Stage 3 science booster classes are taking place every Friday with Ms Homewood. These will take place in P07 every Friday from 3.30pm up until 4.30pm. For the next two weeks, it will only be open to Year 9 students as we prepare for the Year 9 exams. Year 7 and 8 students will also be welcome from December onward.
