Abbeyfield students bringing science to life
1:00pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
Abbeyfield students have been solving crime using DNA techniques provided by Wiltshire police.
A special day of workshops by employers last Wednesday brought science to life for Year 8 pupils at the Chippenham school.
The University of Reading showed how polymers can create anything from a paper-clip to a spacecraft, while Lush handmade cosmetics demonstrated how chemistry creates their range.
Dr Maria Pack, the organiser, for the Royal Society of Chemistry, said: “Often we show them an insight into a career that they are not even aware is out there.”
