As part of Rye's celebrations of British Science Week, we have a number of activities planned for this week.
Our Prep School are presenting their Science Fair projects in the Crush Hall. Year 4 will be doing some serious biology, dissecting fish heads under the expert guidance of the Year 12 A-Level Biologists. There will be a Molecular Gastronomy Workshop in food, a key area of the science department, to which girls may sign up. In the very likely event of a crime being committed in the Science Department, Years 6 and 7 will form forensic teams to investigate. A team from the RAF are visiting to give Year 8 a guide to the Physics of Flight, bringing a working jet engine with them. A group of Year 12 biologists and psychologists will be visiting the Brain Research Unit of the University of Oxford. Years 7 and 10 will be undertaking an engineering challenge thanks to visiting architectural engineer Mrs Walker. Adults too need not miss out - there is an evening science show for parents too. Watch out for activities around Oxford as well, with both of our Universities offering workshops and more.
'Why your children love chemistry'
Tuesday 13 March - 6.30 pm Chemistry Laboratory
As part of British Science Week you are invited to a show for parents and staff (no pupils or siblings please). I promise colour, flame, sparks, explosions and anecdote, very lightly sprinkled with equations (for those who like that sort of thing). The show will take place in the Chemistry Laboratory at Rye St Antony School and last for around an hour and fifteen minutes. Only 24 seats are available.
To reserve your spot please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
There is no charge for this, but donations to the blood bike charity SERV OBN will be welcome after the show.
