Science Week goes with a bang at Royal Docks

Science Week goes with a bang at Royal Docks

Posted: 26th March 2019

A week dedicated to science went with a whizz and a bang at Royal Docks Academy.

The school embraced the subject in celebration of British Science Week.

Throughout the week, Year 7 and 8 students came off of their usual timetable and completed hands-on experiments, demonstrated their skills and knowledge to parents and visitors and attended the Big Bang Fair at the NEC in Birmingham.

A Science Open Evening enabled visitors to sign ping pong balls with their reason for loving science; watch demonstrations; hear STEM club students give presentations on their projects; take part in rat and heart dissections; watch hydrogen rockets, crushing can demonstration and methane bubbles experiments; and watch the grand finale of a nitrogen explosion.

Around school, students could take part in challenges to work out how many M&Ms were in a flask and what the mystery object was inside a box, as well as watching demonstrations by science teachers.

Rouf Miah, joint head of faculty science and computer science, said: “Year 8 completed a forensic science project and investigated the theft of some money. Teachers became suspects and students had to look at lots of evidence, such as fingerprints, hair fibres, scarf fibres and DNA, to work out who the culprit was.

“This is the second year we have gone big for British Science Week. Our open evening gives an opportunity for Year 6 pupils from our feeder primary schools and their families to come into school and experience science at secondary.

“This is about celebrating British Science Week and getting young people enthusiastic about science. We want to inspire them and get them thinking that science is a massive part of their lives without them realising it. Everything around them is about science and technology.

“It was an eventful week and full of excitement. Many of our students were exceptional ambassadors who participated and led demonstrations for the open evening. All of our visitors were in absolute awe of the displays which took place. This was a huge effort from the whole science faculty as well as others around the school who have supported such an event to promote science and I strongly believe this has left a lasting impression on all of our visitors.”
