Science Link-Up with RGS

Years 3, 4 and 5 welcomed students from the Royal Grammar School into their classrooms as part of British Science Week.

The A-Level candidates gave each class a 20-minute demonstration in either chemistry, biology or physics before heading off to another set of eager scientists.

Their biology experiment saw them extract DNA from a strawberry, Chemistry involved a reaction between copper and aluminium, before the physics section used a metallic slinky and plastic cup show how sound waves travel!

Tom Williams, Physics Partnership Teacher at RGS, said: “We had a wonderful time coming into St Lawrence’s and showing the pupils science in action.  We were really impressed by their enthusiasm and also the number of relevant questions they asked us.”

The pupils were also lucky enough to receive a Science Week goodie bag from RGS so they could complete some different experiments at home themselves
