This is a "self delivery" pack which has been designed specifically for National Science and Engineering Week 2013. The science behind fingeprints is well known! What is not so well known is the link between fingerprints and footprints. Right Angle Events have launched a new education pack called ‘Toes for Turf’ comprising at least 4 hours of fun teaching material linked to Key Stage 1-4 Mathematics.
We have designed a fantastic scheme especially for National Science & Engineering Week called "Toes For Turf". The science behind fingerprints is well known. What is not so well known is the science behind footprints or "feet prints". This activity enables students to take, classify and "lift" both fingerprints and foot prints. As the research on footprints is meagre, this scheme will allow students to make some discoveries about the correlation or otherwise between fingerprints and feet prints.
We will be running a science club for children from the junior school for 8 weeks before science week. Children will be working on projects designed by local scientists and making posters to show what they've done. A competition will be held and prizes will be given for the best posters and projects. During science week we'll have a science day for the whole school. Local scientists will come to the school and we'll have science themed activities all day.
Barbara Hepworth: The Hospital Drawings, taking place at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, (16 February - 2 June 2013) reveals the remarkable series of drawings and paintings made by Barbara Hepworth during the late 1940s, illustrating surgeons at work in operating theatres within Post-War Britain. Featuring over 30 works, including Hepworth’s sketchbook, the exhibition is the most significant presentation of this extraordinary series to date, comprising key loans from national, public and private collections.

An exhibition investigating the existence of sea monsters and exploring the science behind the myths. Curated by Dr Charles Paxton of the University of St Andrews, the exhibition looks at various sea monster legends and tests them scientifically to see whether such monsters could actually exist – with sometimes surprising conclusions. The exhibition comprises display panels, natural history specimens from the University and the museum’s collections, and interactive activities.
Weekly workshop investigating the design and engineering behind the Bloodhound SSC project car. Partnered with a design & make activity for groups of students to produce the fastest rocket powered vehicle. Final workshop will include a race day with radar speed guns to measure each teams top speed.
All our students will be making their own enclosed garden in a plastic bottle or a plastic container. They will be doing this to demonstrate how the water cycle works on our planet. Over the coming weeks the students will be able to make their own observations about what is happening in their enclosed gardens.
