From the 18th to the 22nd June, The Mendip School celebrated science with a week of learning dedicated to the subject.
We started off with a trip to We The Curious, where pupils were able to interact with all of the museum pieces, including augmented reality, a weather station, bubble creating and farm to food stands.
For the rest of the week, pupils took part in science practical activities such as:
- field walks / bug spotting
- physical and chemical changes
- slime making
- using paper aeroplanes to study speed, distance and time.
There was also an opportunity to use virtual reality to look at how science can be taught in virtual environments, with pupils putting together skeletons in an anatomy lesson!
