More than 300 people attended Ely College’s second annual science fair which saw science students showcase a range of experiments including mobile phone
holograms, up close dissections, air cannon football and even slime recipes.
Year 7 and 8 students used their lessons to plan, test and prepare presentations for the public as part of British Science Week.
This year also saw Year 5 and 6 pupils from The Lantern Community Primary join in, as mini scientists explaining their class investigations into the effects of gravity.
Sam Craven, curriculum leader at Ely College, said: “We are so proud of the hard work and enthusiasm of our students during this year’s science festival.” “We are delighted that two primary schools, Lantern and St Mary’s, also had children present work from their science lessons.
