The school’s aim is to reach out and engage our school children in science. Our school is situated in a deprived area and we want to ensure that our young people, regardless of background, are encouraged to understand the excitement and importance of science and technology in their lives. We propose to do this by holding a week long focus on science. All stages of primary school children will be involved from P1 to P7. In order to kick-start the event we have arranged for Glasgow Science Centre staff to visit the school on 15th March 2013 where they will deliver their ‘Bodyworks’ programme which offers an array of exciting workshops, live science shows and interactive exhibits. P1-P3 will enjoy the theme of ‘Journey through my body’ whilst P4-P7 will be entertained with ‘Blood, bile and body bits!’ To bring the weeklong event to an exciting finale we have invited the Science Centre back again on 21st March for their ‘Body Works Exhibits’ workshop, which includes between 15-20 different hands-on exhibits for the children to be engaged with. It is intended that on this occasion parents, grandparents and the local press will be invited along so they can also benefit from the ‘joys’ of science and so bringing the message to the whole community.
