News - Nov 9

Saturday 9th October saw the return of in-person events at the Super Science Saturday of the Sidmouth Science Festival. A dedicated team of forty Science Ambassadors from Years 10-13 gave up their time on the weekend to come and inspire younger visitors with hands-on science activities.

Visitors to Kennaway House, where we were based for the day, were treated to displays with flying cups, water jelly marbles, Daphnia under the microscope and space origami to name a few, with many fun science activities to take home with them too.

As ever, our student ambassadors were an absolute credit to the school by sharing their enthusiasm and love of learning with the local community.
