A group of Year 10 students learned all about the appliance of science during a visit to Manchester University's physics department.
The seven students, led by Head of Science Mrs Hooper, spent the day at the city centre institution along with delegates from other Manchester schools.
They started work straight away with a range of demanding maths quizzes to get brains going, which led on to a discussion on the importance of physics. They then transferred to the Physics Computer Suite to try out online questions. And they ended the day by going into the laboratories to set up electrical circuits and measure the resistance of components.
Mrs Hooper said: "We are grateful to Manchester University for hosting this visit, which is part of an ongoing mentoring scheme. It was really good fun, certainly challenging and the students are looking forward to their next visit there in November."
