Wellington College Celebrates Science Week

wellington-celebrating-scienceWellington College International Shanghai celebrated its annual Science week from 28 February to 4 March, which links to the Science and Engineering week in the United Kingdom. The purpose of this week is for Wellington pupils to engage with Science outside the confines of the standard lesson. Following the success of last year, Wellington science teachers organized a vast variety of activities for the pupils, from extracting their own DNA to creating wearable jewelry with a vial of their DNA, frog and worm dissections, to witnessing a liquid nitrogen show where a banana was turned into a hammer!

During the Science Week, Wellington College was proud to open its latest classroom addition - the Data Logging Centre. This new science laboratory contains the newest and most precise equipment available, which enables the collection of scientific data in real-time, through the use of wireless linked sensors to mobile computer systems. This laboratory aims to stretch pupils’ horizons in science, as it will enable pupils to record data at tiny fractions of a second as well as monitor experiments over days and weeks. The ability to record data on a mobile computer pad will allow pupils to design and create experiments both inside and outside the classroom. Furthermore, it will support cross-curriculum projects between subjects such as geography, PE and technology. 

Science week is a celebration of Wellington College’s philosophy of aiming the study of science to enable all pupils to achieve, succeed and thrive in an invigorating and challenging environment. This approach produces pupils with the toolkit to succeed not only in scientific fields, but also in all walks of life.
