Year 10 Physics students visited Manchester Central Library where they saw a screening of "The Martian". The screening was followed by a panel discussion led by guest speakers, who took questions and discussed the science behind the film.
Mr McMahon said: “The speakers, from the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University, were excellent. It was a great way to bring the Science curriculum alive as it complements the Working Scientifically topic, for example problem-solving, evaluating methods, data analysis, scientific questioning. There are also strong links with Space (Physics), Photosynthesis and Ecosystems (Biology) and Chemical Reactions/Analysis (Chemistry).
