At High Grange School this week we started with a bang and ended it with a giggle! We had celebrations for National Science Week and Red Nose Day. See both our articles for more information…
Here at High Grange School, during the week of March 11th-15th, we have been celebrating National Science and Engineering Week. Students and staff across upper and lower school participated well.
Over lunchtimes across the week tower building and bridge building competitions took place, which were competitive and good fun (especially between the staff!). Prizes were awarded to the student building the tallest tower and strongest bridge. In the staff category our ICT teacher Dan built the tallest tower.
Students had fun scaring their staff with the very loud hydrogen gas test!
Form groups took part in the “Amazing Inventions” activity. Ideas of inventions included an automatic wardrobe, a teleportation machine and inventive ways of controlling the air conditioning. The winning form was Upper 8 who invented a device for removing pollution from the air.
Across the week student have prepared agar plates to try to see how clean their hands are – with a wide variety of interesting results!
Lower 2 participated well in science week activities and we are looking forward to growing lettuces and onions with the seeds that we have planted this week.
