Hampton’s annual ISSP Science Day welcomed 56 Year 9 pupils from six local partner schools to participate in a range of exciting and interactive experiments.

The first ISSP partnership event held for over two years provided pupils from Orleans Park, Reach Academy, Teddington School, Hampton High, Tolworth Girls’ School, Lady Eleanor Holles and Hampton School with a fun and informative opportunity to learn about Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The day offered an insight into new topics, encouraging pupils to explore Science beyond the curriculum.

The aspiring scientists took part in a Chemistry lesson investigating how energy changes in chemical reactions, in Biology they examined the effect of pH on digestive enzymes and in Physics they constructed hot air balloons to explore the concept of upthrust.

Mr David Clarke, co-ordinator of the event, was delighted to be able to welcome pupils to the annual ISSP Science Day:

It was so lovely to watch the pupils from all seven schools interact together and enjoy such high quality science lessons, extending their knowledge and investigating new concepts. The feedback forms pay testament to just how much they enjoyed the event and after a two year absence, it was great to welcome young scientists back to the ISSP Science Day.
