Science and the Royal Society

Head of Science, Mrs Perkins spent her free time last weekend as a guest of the Royal Society at a ‘Cutting Edge Classroom’ event.

Mrs Perkins said the event was inspiring and enjoyed listening to keynote speaker Julia Higgins, a polymer scientist who has used techniques from physical chemistry to open up an exciting field of study.

The Cutting Edge Classroom event helped teachers share ideas for bringing the latest scientific research into the classroom and raising the profile of science with students.
