Students test out bed of nails in Physics Workshop!

As part of our affiliation to the Institute of Physics, Mr Mears was again delighted to team teach with Dr Cattermole during this year’s Science Week. Using a range of interactive demonstrations, the Year 9 students were able to explain how it was possible to pierce a potato with a straw and yet avoid piercing themselves as they tried out Mr Mears’ bed of nails!

The students had some real physics fun and are keen to invite Dr Cattermole back again.
