Jan. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- 16 year 7 pupils from London school Notting Hill Prep visited Bedales for a workshop on science at the start of the Spring term.  

Bedales Head of Physics, Toby Hardy and Head of Chemistry, Michael Newman, gave a fascinating interactive presentation on the five senses and how science has extended these to build a greater understanding of the universe. The talk included plenty of practical demonstrations and hands-on work on the senses and how they can be used to perceive the world around us: glasses that turn the world upside down; tastes that only some people can experience; and making objects resonate to create sound were among the activities.  It also included how our senses can be deceived.

The visiting students then went on to made their own pinhole cameras and spent time understanding how a lens could help create and focus an image.  The children left with goody bags containing ‘taste and smell’ strips, a book mark, a yoyo and of course, their own pinhole cameras.

Romaine Butler, Head of Science at Notting Hill Prep said, “The children had such a wonderful time and have been chatting about it non-stop. It was a really inspiring day and gave me some new ideas too!”
