Fun science show inspires Gloucestershire pupils

Pupils from across Gloucestershire were treated to a free science extravaganza, as part of the Gloucestershire Schools' Christmas Lectures at the Bacon Theatre.

Over 400 Year 8 and 9 pupils from Archway School, Barnwood Park Arts College, Beaufort Co-operative Academy, Belmont School, Cheltenham Bournside School, Chosen Hill, Cirencester Kingshill School, Dean Close Prep School, Dene Magna School, Five Acres High School, Millbrook Academy, Pittville School, Rendcomb College, The Cotswold School and Wyedean School attended the show to learn about neuroscience and robotics from experts Ginny Smith and Jonathan Milton.

The science show included lots of laughter and audience interaction and a serious purpose: to learn about the benefits of studying science, technology, engineering and maths at GCSE.

Students emerged with a new enthusiasm for science subjects. One pupil from Wydean said: "I will definitely be doing something in science when I leave school."

The science show was provided by Cheltenham Science Festival free of charge to the schools thanks to the support of the Honourable Company of Gloucestershire and sponsors Renishaw plc, Gloucestershire Engineering Training, Spirax Sarco, Mears Foundation, Randall & Payne, Harrison Clark Rickerbys Solicitors and the International Food Information Service.
