British Science Week 2020!

Posted on: 13/03/2020

For British Science Week, Year 7 and Year 8 students have been finding out the best foods to take on an ‘Orchid hunting expedition’. The brief was; 

‘A group of plant hunters looking for a rare species of orchid, are going on an expedition up a mountain to try and find it. British Science Week has asked you to help their explorers take the most energy-packed lunch with them up the mountain.’ 

Students have been finding out the energy content of crisps and also using their numeracy skills to work out the best ingredients for a snack bar. 

Lots of fun has been had. Who knew an ‘Oven Baked’ crisp would have so much energy in it? In addition, some very tasty snack bars have been designed too! Well done Year 7 and 8!
