Last year the Science Club applied to the Institute of Physics for a grant of £500 to purchase stimulating equipment for our club.

 Last year the Science Club applied to the Institute of Physics for a grant of £500 to purchase stimulating equipment for our club. After a nailbiting wait we were very happy to receive the full grant in recognition of the outstanding work we do with our Year 7s in the Science Department.

The Science Club this year has an unprecedented average attendance of 40, one of the largest clubs the Stimulating Physics Network has heard of to date. However we are not resting on our laurels, with new and creative workshops made possible by the fun equipment we have purchased, we hope to grow our club further this year.

We were able to purchase alternative energy source windmills, electrical conductive paint, vacuum bazookas, air resistance parachutes, along with floating magnets and sonic guns to name a few.

Here’s to a fun scientific year at the club.
