    This week the science department took 34 year 10 students to "Science Live!" in Sheffield. The students heard 5 of Britain's top scientists working at the cutting edge of their specialisms.
    First up Professor Tony Ryan who explained the science of hydroponics: the growing of plants without soil, just water and nutrients.

    Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, a self-confessed 'lunatic' for her love of all things Lunar was up next. She described how her interest in the moon came about, the theories about how it was formed, the importance of the moon in cultures across the world and finally how it is moving away from us at a rate of 3.5cm/year.

    Next up was Professor Dave Cliff. He discussed the future of technology and how computer chips are limited by the physical properties of silicon.

    Professor Alice Roberts explained why the dog really is 'man's best friend'. The dog evolved from the European Grey wolf 130,000 years ago and they are the oldest known companion animals of humans; 30-40 000 years.

    Finally Professor Robert Winston talked about fertility, conception and development in the womb. The odds are stacked against each process so it is amazing we are all here.!

    Stewart Cheney, a senior science examiner gave the student valuable tips on approaching their Science GCSE examinations next year and where mistakes are often made.
    The students behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school.
