Ho Ho Ho! St Julie’s host Christmas Science event
St Julie’s Catholic High School hosted a special event last night, a Christmas science lecture delivered by its own science students.
St Julie’s provides its students with varied science offering all year round, attending and hosting its own science events regularly. Earlier this year they celebrated the Liverpool Science Festival with a whole host of STEM related activities, from visits to the Big Bang Fair and Royal Society in London, as well as their own school based activities.
The lecture evening featured speakers from across all year groups, who lectured on a range of science topics, including states of matter and Chromatography. The evening also involved some live demonstrations; a live heart dissection and the evolutionary timeline of the universe, creatively done by using a toilet roll. A former pupil, Sofia Riccio, now studying at Cambridge University, was in attendance, to give students insight into her undergraduate work and experience within the scientific industry.
Head of Science, Kate Doran, said: “A huge amount of fantastic work goes on within our science department and the students who have a natural flair for practical work are rarely given the opportunity to show their talents. We provided this platform in a ‘Royal Society’ styled Christmas lecture evening.”
