  • Lab in a Lorry

    Lab in a Lorry visited the school last week, an interactive mobile science laboratory which gives young people the opportunity to explore science through open ended experiments. Guided by volunteers who are scientists and engineers from industry and academia, the students relished the opportunity to work with ‘real’ scientists. 


    The Lab was fitted with three distinct lab areas where groups of students took part in each of the fun and informative experiments. Everyone got to try their hand at experimental science and think about the surprises and questions that arose. We would like to thank James, Josie and the rest of the crew, along with the Institute of Physics for providing such excellent opportunities for the students.
