COLYTON: Students have fun with science
Thursday, 27 March 2014
STUDENTS?at Colyton Primary School celebrated National Science and Engineering Week with a special programme of “Into the Future” themed actvities.
Events included a visit from engineers at Alcoa who taught the children about robots and brought in real robots for the pupils to operate themselves. This was followed later in the week with a whole school building challnege in which the pupils were separated into groups to plan, design and build their own robots that could help stop climate change and save the planet.
The school was also visited by Sarah Connors from Resource Futures to teach students about the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle campaign.
Some classes also took part on trips out of school, including to New Barn Field Centre in Dorchester to learn how the Celts built round houses and to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth to learn about life under the sea and how to protect the ocean.
Other activities included making electrical circuits, using microscopes, learning about moths, bats and composting.
