Aims of the project
To give local primary school pupils an introduction to scientific investigation and principles. To enthuse Year 4-6 pupils about practical science and its applications in medicine and technology.
Background and goals
An outreach initiative from the Head of Science, Dr Kevin Walsh.
School science labs, teaching staff and Westminster Sixth Form pupils. One particularly popular piece of equipment is the inflatable observatory!
Our Sixth Form pupils act as demonstrators and mentors. They enjoy this very much and the primary school pupils benefit enormously - they become very animated and enthusiastic.
Frequency and duration
Ongoing annual programme.
