Practical Science at Merchants' Academy

Since September Merchants’ Academy science faculty have been welcoming secondary students each week for practical science lessons. The science teachers have been focused on delivering engaging and interactive practical lessons, which enables students to experience a science curriculum supported by practical experiments and enquiry sessions.

Each week, students visit Merchants’ Academy Secondary building and undertake a full range of Biology, Chemistry and Physics practical lessons. These have included heart dissections to DNA extraction, slime making to forensic science and canister rockets to polymerisation.

Over the past 12 weeks, all students have began to develop into proper investigative scientists and have demonstrated some high end scientific practical skills.

The students have been an absolute pleasure to teach!
