Science Enrichment

Students at St Anselm's Catholic School have many opportunities to take part in Science enrichment activities.

Science Club runs during Wednesday lunchtimes and gives students a chance to try exciting and fun science that goes beyond the curriculum. It is particularly aimed at years 7 & 8 but older students are welcome and often join in and help too. We have different activities every week across all science disciplines and students also enter local and national competitions.

Some of the other enrichment activities which have taken place during 2012:

A group of year 8 students took part in the Salter's Festival of Chemistry held at the University of Grenwich and came third in the University Challenge.

During Science Week, all students in years 7, 8, 9 & 10 enjoyed a fantastic 'Cool Science' show from the University of Kent held in our hall.

A group of year 9 students took part in a Science Extravaganza day at UKC.

Students from Year 11 and 13 took part in a bespoke university workshop on DNA profiling at CCCU.

Sixth form AS and A2 Biology students had a progamme of talks from visiting university professors and PhD students. Topics included: contraction of muscles, the complexities of cancer treatments and local and international conservation.

 

DO TRY THIS AT HOME

Go to the INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS website to find some great experiments that you can do at home using things that you will find in your home.

If you try any then please take a photo of them and sent them to Mrs Allen (e.allen@st-anselms.org.uk) and she will make sure that she included them in one of the Science department displays (and issue you with an achievement point).

Some of the experiments are;

Bending water
Soap art
Making lava lamps (with peanuts!)
Gripping rice
Psychedelic milk
The waterproof seine
