Week commencing 9th March 2020
This week, we travelled to Magdalene College Cambridge for a morning of Science. We were lucky enough to hear from four practising scientists at the University of Cambridge about some of their research. One of the speakers proved to us, through the use of a slinky and some balloons, how sound travelled in waves and calculated the speed of sound. Other speakers talked about the creation of the universe and the extraordinary observational drawings of Robert Hooke in his Micrographia. Many of us most enjoyed sitting in a lecture theatre like real science students (and the biscuits and squash of course!)
We have continued our work on algebra and statistics in Maths and have nearly reached the end of our biased argument unit.
Keep washing your hands and see you next week!
