East Norfolk Sixth Form College played host to a very special Science event designed to involve 150 local year 9 students from high schools in the area in two days of Science activity. The high school students were kept busy with a host of activities from making hand cream to designing a DNA necklace.
The activities were organised by visiting UEA lecturers and UEA undergraduate students. Three UEA students were especially delighted to help with the activities as they were former East Norfolk students.
Bhovina Seewoodharry Buguth and Arinjay Kishan went on to study Pharmacy at UEA after studying A levels at East Norfolk. They were helping the high school students to make lotions and potions.
Bhovina said that it was great coming back to College and being able to pass on the science legacy to the next generation.
Chris Applegate a Phd student in Computer Graphics at UEA helped students to design a robot. When Dan was at East Norfolk he studied a BTEC in IT and A level Maths "It’s pretty awesome seeing how the College has developed in the short time since I’ve left and great to see students engaging in these activities. Hopefully they will be our future Scientists!"
Nine schools participated in the event:
