Berkhamsted Schools’ Science Fair – June 2017

Teams Lowry and Picasso have been out and about again and this time, it was for Science! The Ogden Trust held their annual Science fair at Berkhamsted Preparatory School and we were invited along. Across the morning we learnt that so much of Science is making informed judgements and then changing our thinking as we discover new information – it’s all about that open, flexible mindset! Infra-red cameras taught us about body heat and showed us how we can track the footsteps of a hot-blooded mammal, even in the dark! Finally, the main event – the planetarium – had us all in awe as we visited the Moon, Jupiter, Mars and discovered the constellations of the stars. It’s safe to say that everyone had a great time and a big thank you goes to the Ogden Trust for holding this event and to the parent helpers that came along – we can’t do these events without you! Until the next adventure…
