Science provides a wealth of knowledge that allows students to understand the world around them, not just whilst at school, but for the rest of their lives. At Bedlington Academy, we believe a high-quality science education provides the foundations for students to enable them to go on to contribute positively in many diverse areas of science and beyond. We teach students the key knowledge, methods, processes, and uses of science - skills that are useful not just in science, but across the whole curriculum.
What has been happening in the department recently?
Science Club is now up and running and includes lots of exciting topics and practical experiments including everyone's favourite, slime, as well as designing spaghetti towers and building paper rockets.
Year 12 physics students have submitted a very strong application for a UK Space Agency competition on the use of satellites. They are also set to compete in the Physics Olympiad, an annual competition that tests our budding young physicists, pitching them against their peers across the country.
