KS3 Science Club

This term has seen Key Stage 3 science club return to the science block, with a different activity taking place each week for year 7 and year 8 students.

Most recently, Mr Burley has been demonstrating some forensic science to a group of very keen young scientists. Students were shown how to dust for and lift fingerprints using nothing more than graphite powder and sellotape.

Fingerprints are left behind on everything we touch, and the very fine powder makes it possible to make the unique prints visible. This means the method allows potential suspects to be identified in a very reliable way.

KS3 Science club continues this term, with fun and engaging activities organised by science teachers for all year 7 and year 8 students at lunchtimes in L-Block.
