The theme for this year’s British Science Week was exploration and discovery.  Young people were encouraged to think about everyday discoveries and how they affect their lives by exploring Science in the world around them, from their home and schools, to their local area and wider environment.


Students at Wyvern certainly enjoyed and embraced the activities completed during this annual celebration of Science.  Year 7 students had a chance to grow their own cropmarks as well as the opportunity to analyse and interpret some common artefacts found at many archaeological sites.


Year 8 students were able to make their own cheese through the ‘coagulation’ of milk, and students discovered that this process was also used as the basis for making plastic out of milk in the early 20th century.  In addition, some Year 8 students took on the challenge of creating a diet plan suitable for an expedition to the Antarctic, with the added task of keeping to very strict dietary and financial requirements.  Many students developed excellent collaboration and leadership skills during this activity.
