Science AG&T

Year 10 and 11 AG&T science students have attended 2 lectures so far this academic year at the University of Bristol. The first one was regarding fireworks and the lecturers were from Jubilee Fireworks. We got to see how fireworks were given their colours, sounds and sparkles. The lecture theatre was full of smoke and at one point there was a rogue firework shooting around the place! It was a thrilling and informative lecture.

We then spend another evening with John Kilcoyne-‘the man in the shed’ from Brainiacs. He was amazing and delivered the lecture ‘Chemistry for the Terrified’. He looked at energy but linked it to as many explosions, bangs and shocks as he could. We were mesmerised for the entire lecture and he was a truly inspiring scientist who demonstrated that science is exciting, relevant and thought provoking.
