    Bedale High School

    Last friday , 30 Year 9 students had the amazing opportunity to take part in a STEM day run by the biopharmaceutical company - Pfizer.
    'From molecule to medicine'....students investigated the journey medicines take from laboratories to hospitals, sometimes taking up to 15 years & billions of pounds!

    The journey started with the challenge of picking a disease to treat and then pitching their argument to 'the board'; the students stood up to some tough scrutiny!

    Then onto looking at how the physical properties of molecules determine how the mixture of active and inactive ingredients are combined during the manufacturing process to ensure equal dosage of the active ingredient in all tablets.
    The pupils did this by comparing the size and behavior of different grains of sugar when poured through different shaped funnels.

    Finally, the pupils looked at the 4 stages of drug testing including animals and the 3 phases on humans, re-enacting a 'randomised' drug trial using jelly beans and how they affect pulse rate.

    Such an inspiring day for our students, who knows what medicines our young scientists could be creating in 15 years time!?

    Bedale High School

    Fantastic day with Year 10 who spent a taster day at Queen Elizabeth College in Darlington finding out about courses and opportunities.

    Students were thoroughly engaged in their sessions which ranged from Law, App design, Science, Travel and Tourism and Psychology!

    QE tutors remarked how much they enjoyed teaching the Bedale students and praised their behaviour, enthusiasm and ideas.
