The Tensile Strength of Paper

This week marked the beginning of STEM club for Year 7. The students couldn’t wait to take part in their first challenge. As a group, they were asked to build a tower with just straws and Sellotape – the only rules were that they needed to stand on their own and they couldn’t be stuck to the desk.

Cool Science

After Open Evening, Year 7 and 8 were treated to a Science Show. This included using liquid nitrogen to freeze jelly babies, bananas and even making ice cream in under a minute. After that, they were shown the magic of static electricity and even a self-lighting candle!
