Crown Hills Community College Launches Lab_13… A pioneering science space managed by young people for young people

by JenniferD 25. February 2010 15:19

I have now settled in as scientist in residence at Lab 13 at Crown Hills Community College and look forward to our official launch on the 25th of February. There is a buzz going around the school fuelled by those who have discovered Lab_13 and have enjoyed the experience.

The lab has so far seen a number of Lunchtime clubs (exploring the science used in hollywood films) and an inventors club where students have had the freedom to design their own innovative project. A Come Alive With Science project (looking at the science behind fashion) has also taken place in the lab.

The experience of working with the students in Lab_13 at Crown Hills has also helped me to grow as an individual as I have had to manage the expectations of a school, a group of confident students as well as the aims and objectives of the project as a whole. Apart from all the amazing experiments I have been able to demonstrate so far, I have also learnt not to show students how to make slime and to leave decorating the lab to the art department!
