Mr Paul Rigby visited us from Downside school on Friday afternoon to show us that science at secondary school is just as amazing and inspiring as it is at prep school!
We were also joined by pupils from Durweston Primary School. The children were able to watch and be part of a whole range of experiments which demonstrated scientific concepts. It was an amazing opportunity to enjoy science and see how science surrounds us in every day life, as well as enjoy some classic science jokes!
Before the demonstration, Mr Rigby kindly spent some time with a couple of our academic scholars. He was able to test their understanding using some interesting thought experiments and help them improve their interview technique. He was very impressed by our girls and the level of curiosity and skills shown, which was particularly pleasing as he normally deals with A-level pupils preparing for Oxbridge interviews.
Thank you Mr Rigby.
