During Science and Engineering Technology Week, leading independent workshop provider ‘Hands on Science’ was invited from Birmingham to deliver a series of practical investigations for students at the Watford African Caribbean Supplementary School. The investigations encouraged pupils to explore and develop their skills in observation, prediction, evaluation, team work and problem solving.
Students used “CSI” methodology to discover who “topped” Mrs Potts, employed maths to learn how crystals are formed and made furniture from balloons.
“Awesome”, “Amazing” and “I did not realise that would happen” were a few of the comments from Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. A Key Stage 4 student said “We need to look beyond the obvious and analyse the crime scene”.
All the pupils had a fun and enjoyable learning experience.
