On Wednesday 15th March eight Year 9 students, accompanied by Mr Moss, visited Begbroke Science Park for a Science Innovation Showcase.
Through the visit, we found out about gas weapons that are used to test how jet engines ingest living birds, how the kerb can affect a bike helmet, and how ceramic coatings are sprayed onto tungsten metal to make them more heat resistant.
We also developed the “Squishy Rescue Robot” which can be used to rescue and locate people trapped from natural disasters, wriggle through minute spaces, and track people from their heartbeat.
Although we didn’t win we really enjoyed it.
Finally, we were given a presentation on new spyware being developed for the military, based on dragonflies, and spin-off designs being used for propelling submarines and generating sustainable electricity.
