Themed workshops, experiments, talks and events were held to celebrate British Science Week at a St Albans school recently.
Students at Sandringham School exploded Coke with Mentos, made rainbow milk and sugar snakes, listened to a talk on 3D printing from the Airbus Aerospace Company, and designed rollercoasters.
They also made balloon rockets and 3D pancakebots, and supported a penguin watch.
Science based performances came to the school’s Sandpit Theatre - one called the Chemistry Show, and the other a comedy from The Last Baguette Theatre Company, called What’s the Matter.
All of the activities were based around a theme of change.

Director of learning for science, Sam Head, said it was a fantastic week: “This year’s British Science Week was probably one of our biggest to date with hundreds of students involved.
“The whole STEM [science, technology, engineering, maths] team worked hard to provide a range of activities to captivate the students. The Year 8 dinosaur projects and the annual chemistry show were some of our highlights.”
On Thursday that week, the students released a helium balloon to near space to take pictures of the curvature of the earth.
