Oh Bouy that was Fun!

Our Science department were lucky enough to have the Marine Society and Sea cadets visit us recently to deliver an enthusiastic workshop on buoyancy.
Year 7 took part in a session on upthrust, density and the Archimedes principle and then built boats to test what they had learnt. Pupils displayed much ingenuity in the design and construction of a bulk carrier, capable of transporting marbles from China to the UK. Well done to Evie Pitt and Harley Page who managed to carry over 300 marbles until unfortunately, the boat sprang a leak! As usual our pupils were exemplary ambassadors for the school.
