Wow, the Autumn holidays seem so far away! We have taken a deep dive into the science behind materials this term, focussing on elements, how they bond and how this relates to their properties. We have been able to learn magic tricks and explain how they work, go on some chemical speed dates and explore the patterns in the periodic table. Another key focus has been the modelling of profit and costs, after all, it doesn’t make a lot of business sense to have a great idea if it cannot be shared.

Looking forward, students have a major focus on continual prototyping and developing their innovation, with this culminating in a showcase, open to parents, on either Thursday 31 May (A-group) or Tuesday 5 June (B-Group).
