Science Week at Hampton High

British science week 2018 webYear 7: During Science Week students in Year 7 have been using their investigative skills to find out which materials would be most suitable for an astronaut's nappy. They started their week by planning an investigation to test the absorbency of various materials after they found out that astronauts must wear nappies inside their space suit during extended space walks. Modaser Satari in Year 7 said "At the beginning of this exciting week of Science we started to look at something quite interesting and fascinating, astro-nappies! Astro-nappies are adult sized nappies made only for astronauts. Do you know they why they create them? Well they created it to help the astronauts who may need to urinate when they are outside, sometimes for nearly 9 hours, completing space walks. You might wonder why they can't just go to the toilet, well they can't go to the toilet because they aren't allowed to take off their suits. It takes one hour to take off and another hour to put back on!"
 
Year 8: Year 8 completed a project at the start of the week where they designed their own ergonomic pen grip. Yasmin Ali said "We learnt that ergonomic design means making something more comfortable and easier to use. It has been a great week and has helped me to think independently as I have had to come up with original ideas, I couldn't just copy things".  Amber McCaffery said "My favourite part of Science Week has been entering the British Science Association's competition. I have been able to use my own general knowledge and also find out new and interesting facts about space." 
 
For homework during Science Week Year 8 students were asked to research their favourite scientific invention. Thea Kelly-Whitby wrote about the SALt (sustainable alternative lighting) lamp, a lamp used on many islands of the Phillipines that is powered by 1 glass of water and 2 teaspoons of salt. Apparently the lamp lasts for around 8 hours a day over a 6 month span before the anode needs replacing. Other interesting research came from Archie Knight who researched Frank Whittle a Royal Air Force officer who made a major contribution to the invention of the jet engine and Millie Owens who said her favourite invention was Netflix because it is an easy way to watch old and new shows.
 
Year 9: Year 9 had an incredibly challenging task this week to design a system that could be used to transport tomatoes. They were briefed on why this kind of technology is needed as there are farmers in Nepal who grow their crops on the top of mountains, before they have to transport them to markets located down in the valleys. Not only were students able to create mechanisms for moving objects over 1m down a steep gradient but some were also able to manufacture pulley-systems that could move the objects used back up again. It was inspiring to see such ingenuity come from the collaboration of our Year 9s. On National demo day year 9 students were also treated to a liquid nitrogen show where they got to experience just how cold -195.79°C really is. They were certainly entertained by Mr Marillat's facts about the substance and watching how it could be used to make a balloon deflate before it warmed up & inflated again.
 
Year 10 and 11: Students in Year 10 and 11 were challenged to take part in a treasure hunt quiz. The winners were Sam Gilmurray, Toby Hawkins and Andre Serra in Year 11. The students had to collect a question from each of their Science teachers and using their answers decipher the date of an important moment in history when a scientific event took place. With the numbers 1, 6, 20, 7, 9 and 9, they came up with the 20th July 1969 the date when Apollo 11 put two men on the moon.
 
As part of National demo day on Thursday 15th March KS4 students were invited to watch Mr Marillat dissect a rat. There were a lot of fascinated faces mingling with grimaces of disgust! With some of our students who often 'talk-the-talk' needing to 'walk-the-walk' right out of the room...
 
This week in STEM club:After school on Wednesday year 7 and 8 students were invited to participate in a special STEM club where liquid nitrogen was used to make ice cream! Miss Brodie, Mrs Hasker and Mr Marillat were hard at work during the day preparing enough ice cream to feed the crowd, then Miss Brodie demonstrated once more how easy it is to make by mixing equal parts of single cream and double cream, icing sugar and a flavouring; on the day we used raspberry and vanilla.
