Hot on the heels of the success of the school’s first Science Week last March, we are planning out next year’s event which will be held to coincide with British Science Week running from March 12-16 2018. The week will be themed around Discovery & Exploration.
We are looking for science professionals from many domains who would be willing to spare a few hours of their time to come and give a talk or run a short workshop for our our students and/or their parents, on their area of expertise. If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please contact David Berland.
