Year 12s make waves

Year 12 students have enjoyed making a big wave machine in their Physics A level course with Miss Ardell.  Armed with wooden skewers, fruit jellies and duct tape, their final effort measured nearly five metres!

Students were able to see how energy moves without matter and also experimented with sending waves simultaneously from each end of the machine, creating quite a stir when the waves reached the middle.

As a STEM focussed school, we aim to develop the medical engineers and professionals of the future by providing as many opportunities as possible for students to participate in practical lessons. 

Not sure how long the fruit jellies will last though…..!
