A PIECE of Olympic memorabilia was turned into a science lesson at a St Albans secondary school recently.

Twenty pupils at St Albans School held and studied an Olympic torch as part of a science lesson on energy.

They used the Games as a topic to discuss and illustrate the different ways energy could be stored and transferred, using a torch brought in by science technician Phil Prasad. He is very proud of his mother, Sue, who was torch-bearer through the streets of Ecclesfield in Yorkshire during the recent torch relay. The boys created cartoons of the nine forms of energy, each featuring the torch in an original way including kinetic, nuclear and strain energy.
