Science Fair 2019
On Saturday 27th of April, the Purbeck School held its annual Science fair. Now in its fifth year, this hugely popular event hit record attendance and proved to be a fantastic day out for all those who attended.
Students from across the school and members of the wider community took part in an exciting range of free, inspiring scientific activities featuring BAE Systems, Cobham, Biotrack, The National Trust, Monkey World, Toshiba and our very own Science department. With the enormous number of interactive workshops on show, as well as an amazing Science Dome- with shows about dinosaurs and the solar system, The Purbeck School Science Fair was, once again, a great educational afternoon out for the whole family.
One highlight of the day was the STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) work led by The Purbeck School lead teacher and chemist, Mr Davids. Visitors were massively impressed by the augmented reality sandbox that allowed people to build mountains and watch the landscape react to their changes – even allowing people to make it rain by waving their hand!
As well as this, visitors were gripped by balloon battling robots and a Rubik’s cube solving robots. We would also like to thank all of our students who came to support the science department during this busy event; as always, they were fantastic ambassadors for the school.
Many thanks to TOSHIBA for sponsoring The Purbeck School Science Fair 2019.
