Research in Science

This has been a great week for student research in our Library. Year 7 have been tackling a space task which has required discovering the scientific terminology and information to produce an imaginative response. All three classes have made good use of our book stock and our electronic resources.

Year 10 are involved in researching Forces and finding out how things like crash test dummies, air bags and seat belts work. They have been accessing  number of electronic resources to gain current information about this rapidly changing and improving aspect of our real lives.

Along with acquiring content knowledge, students have been developing their skills in citing and referencing their sources. These skills will be vital when they leave us to move into further education at some point.
