Science Week 2022

British Science Week 2022 was kicked off with a challenge from Mr. Xavier!

Students were challenged to see how many push-ups they could do with just their little fingers.  Pushing through the pain barrier of their ever increasing lactic acid and dwindling ATP the challenge was to beat Mr Xaier's PB of 89?  

Then, on Tuesday, Leventhorpe's Year 7 scientists had an amazing day at the annual Big Bang Science Fair, held at Herts & Essex School, where Joseph Little, Harry Bailey, and Ethan Johnson's investigaton into 'How different foods affect the population of ant colonies' was awarded 1st place by the judges in the competition!  The trio will now go on to represent Leventhorpe in the National Competition in Birmingham in June!  (See full story on our dedicated news page).

There were Science-based activities taking place throughout the week including a Poster Competition for Years 7-10 which resulted in some amazingly informative designs which rendered judging the competition a difficult task indeed!

Congratulations to the overall winner, Joshua French 8L, for his Regrowth & Regeneration Poster which explored scientific studies into the possibilities of human tissue regrowth and which caught the eye with it's colourful and interesting design.

Science Week ended on Friday with our very own Science Fair in the hall, where the poster finalists were displayed and our Year 7 students got to present their experiments to the rest of the school.  Our Cansat team also organised a Cake Sale, to help raise funds for their satellite building, the launch of which takes place on 22nd March.
