It has been another busy week for our Science department this week. We were fortunate to have Winchester Science Centre join us for the day to present to our pupils and demonstrate various aspects of science. The talk to KS3 pupils involved an introduction to the variety of waves in the electromagnetic spectrum. Pupils were able to use a thermal imaging camera and see the gold sheet space blanket used by Tim Peake. This reflects Infrared radiation and appears opaque but close up is transparent. In order for pupils to get an idea of the scale of the universe they were reminded that it would take eleven days without a break to count to 1 million and 33 years to count to 1 billion, the universe is about 28 billion light years across. Some KS4 pupils also attended a presentation and shown how visible light interacts with atoms to emit light.
