Challenge Projects are well underway.  Year 11s have recently started a project designing and building a robotic arm, year 9s are investigating photosynthesis and biofuels.  Last week we also had 3 sixth form projects start, our biomedical strand has seen a group of students start to clone and express the LC2 protein involved in autophagy with scientists from the Babraham Institute; the physical science/engineering strand is seeing students working with Zeiss and the Gurdon Institute to explore microscopy; whilst the computer scientists are working with Redgate and AstraZeneca on a bioinformatics based project.  The first full year 10 project, working with the University of Cambridge will start shortly exploring the use of animals in research.

Geneva 2018

This month, some of our Sixth Formers flew to Geneva to visit CERN to see the Hadron Collider. The trip included a 3 hour tour of the facility and a visit to the United Nations and International Red Cross, both also based in Geneva.

Students took lots of photos to share – including some of Physics Monkey, who accompanied them on their tour…Inside the UN chamber…And under the Broken Chair sculpture across the street from the Palace of Nations. The 12-metre high sculpture symbolises opposition to landmines and cluster bombs. This is the first time CAST has visited CERN but we hope to repeat the trip on an annual basis for our Year 12 and 13.
