Year 8s & 9s British Science Week

“Growth” is the theme to be explored by students from Saint Paul’s who will be taking part in British Science Week, a celebration of science, engineering, maths and technology.

A fitting theme for what has been a turbulent time for all of us, ‘Growth’ links with multiple areas across science, technology, engineering and maths. We can find examples of growth within all subjects and all around us, making it an excellent starting point for a celebration of science!

As part of British Science Week 2022, the Year 8s and 9s will be participating in a Food Science project, led by their Science teacher.

The objective of Food Science week is to make links between Science and our daily lives by planning the menu for a party. This project explores the role of biotechnology in food production, evaluation of healthy alternatives to meat, sugar and gluten, whilst at the same time allowing our young scientists to hone their investigative skills through practical applications to bread, ice-cream and sweetie making. There will also be a focus on careers in this industry.
