The return to school coincided with Science Week, and Langley pupils and students certainly got things going with a bang.
At the start of the week, Lower Sixth students created and used an air cannon to reach space. Testing velocity and weight and travel, the students made adjustments after the canon fired various materials through the air. Making great use of our big open campus, the experiment was done outside.
During the week, Year 8 pupils were given the opportunity to use Science lessons to let their hair down after lockdown, measuring the volume of their shouts.
Elsewhere, Year 10 pupils had exciting lessons with ethanol rockets, finding inspiration from the Mars Perseverance mission, which was streamed live around the world as it landed in February.
Langley did some live streaming of its own so that a pupil learning remotely from home in Bermuda could engage with the class that explored alcohol burning in controlled explosions.
We think it’s safe to say that both the return to school and Science Week have been a big hit.
