Science Trip to BayLabs

On Friday 13th October 30 Year 10’s travelled all the way to Reading to visit BayLabs to take part in an exciting revision workshop. Throughout the day they learnt about problems facing the planet, and how scientists are working to resolve these issues.

They learnt a lot about chlorophyll in plants – testing it with indicators and UV light, doing chromatography and looking at plants under special microscopes they wouldn’t find at school. It was also a chance to find out different career options in science. Year 10’s loved the experience and are hoping for another visit!
