The Sky Is Not The Limit

A vivid demonstration of science in action was given to students to encourage them to aim high and think about where their studies could take them.

Key Stage 4 students were captivated when Director of Science Elaine Ponton held a special science-themed assembly complete with a 'big bang' experiment.

She demonstrated the reactions that can happen between chemicals and played a short film which highlighted how science can help us to understand the world around us.

The Symphony of Science clip is part of a musical project designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form.

Ms Ponton also used a quote by astronomer and astrophysicist Carl Sagan to remind students of the power of science:  "We're made of star stuff".

She ended the assembly by telling students: "For you, the sky is not the limit."
