GCSE Science Live!

Eighty-seven members of the Fifth Form attended the GCSE Science Live! science day at the New Theatre, Oxford on Thursday 5th March, where they had the opportunity to hear five world-renowned scientists enthuse on their work, and also to get hints and tips from a Chief Examiner in preparation for their exams in the summer.

Pupils heard informative and instructive talks from Professor Richard Dawkins on natural selection, Professor Alice Roberts on how the skeleton of a 1.5 million year old boy can shed light on what it means to be human, Professor Lord Robert Winston on the science behind egg fertilisation, Dr Kate Lancaster on nuclear fusion and Professor Dave Cliff on the great strides computer science has made over the last 50 years.

All left the theatre enthused by the many different aspects of science shown during the day.
