Members of JCSC Sixth Form headed to Newcastle last week, where they took part in a special chemistry event and found out more about student life in higher education.
Our Year 12 Chemistry and Applied Science students visited Northumbria University with Director of Science Mrs Bailey, and took part in a chemistry synthesis event.
The students had the opportunity to use the university’s laboratories to make fluorescent compounds.
They also had the chance to explore the campus and meet with academic staff from Department of Applied Sciences.
As you can see from the photos, our students felt very at home in their temporary surroundings and thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon of learning, exploring and synthesising.
The students on the visit were a great credit to JCSC, displaying a real thirst for knowledge and asking thoughtful and insightful questions.
Director of Science Mrs Bailey said: “The Year 12 students had a fantastic morning. Along with thoroughly enjoying the practical activities, the visit really highlighted to the group the sheer variety of career pathways that studying science opens up to you.”
Special thanks go to Northumbria University’s Department of Applied Sciences for inviting and hosting JCSC Sixth Form students.
