An inspirational day of Science for GCSE pupils with three renowned scientists
On Friday we went to the Apollo Theatre in London to attend GCSE Science Live. We heard from three world renowned scientists, including physicist Prof Jim Al Khalili. They spoke about climate change and how physics is trying to overcome some of our energy issues as well as the reality (or lack of it) of time travel!. Professor Lord Robert Winston talked about reproduction and we saw how an egg travels through the fallopian tubes to get to the uterus; so interesting! Finally we listened to Professor Andreas Sella who demonstrated how amazing water is and how its chemical properties make it so unique. We also gained top tips from a chief examiner and were given a programme of events that had past questions on it with these examiners tips. It was a very inspirational day!
