Peele Community College in Long Sutton has announced their achievement as a Science College this week during National Science and Engineering Week. Stella Morgan, from The Lincolnshire and Rutland Education Business Partnership is attending the College’s ‘Science can be Fun’ day where approx. 75 students, aged 12–14, will participate in 3 workshops covering Galileo, Forensics & Anthropology and Animal Encounters. Here is a summary of what is in store:
Galileo – Run by Peter Joyce from the Physics Theatre, who is dressed as Galileo, opens the day and acts out his life to the students.
Forensics & Anthropology – Run by Dr. Mark Baron Principle Lecturer of Analytical and Bio Chemistry Department of the University of Lincoln. The students will have a chance to look at Crime Scene Forensics (fingerprinting etc) and Anthropology (skeleton structure, body / face reconstruction activities).
Animal Encounters – Run by Jay Gunn founder member of Animal Encounters. The students get to see exotic animals and reptiles and learn about the food chains and ecology. The day consists of lots of student interaction which hopefully will encourage them to see that ‘Science can be Fun’. Students will also have a chance to ask questions at the end of the day and learn more about courses on offer at the University.
