Pupils from Kingussie High School’s Science Club are preparing to become space biologists and embark on a voyage of discovery by growing seeds that have been into space. In September, 2kg of rocket seeds were flown to the International Space Station (ISS) on Soyuz 44S where they will spend several months in microgravity and […]
Our S2/3 Computing students have started the Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge in the new STEM room! For more information or if you wish to take part as an extra-curricular activity, please contact Miss Graham or Mrs Nagle – https://www.facebook.com/TomorrowsEngineers/
Our S3 pupils are working on a STEM challenge for the next term thinking about the global impact of plastics. The project is based on work from the charity Practical Action whose goal is to promote the use of technology to combat poverty; to use real science to produce sustainable and practical solutions. The group […]
A couple of nice snaps here from Higher Chemistry last week. The class were lining glass beakers with silver in the same way that mirrors are made.
We are continuing to build on partnerships with Higher Education. Last week Mr Kendall took his S5 and S6 Chemistry Students to the St Andrews University Chemistry Department for the day. In the University labs they extracted Eugenol from cloves by steam distillation followed by multiple solvent extractions. The students then established purity and structure […]
Last Thursday Miss Seymour asked her S1 class to play detectives to find out who killed Mr Adamson. Pupils learned about forensic science and managed to rule out each of the teacher suspects until they could prove it was Miss Seymour herself that was guilty. She will have to be watched closely from now on! (In case […]
In Geography S1 pupils are currently learning about weather and 1Y tried a crazy experiment to help them understand convection currents! Warm (red) water did not mix with cold (blue) water when sitting on top – plenty of evidence for this in the photo above! Thanks for the inspiration Steve Spangler. Lots more great weather […]
After learning about the differences between plant and animal cells in class the Miss Seymour’s 1 Feshie Class were set a homework task to ‘imagine that a Science Museum has asked you to make a model cell for a display’. They could choose whether they wanted to make a plant or an animal cell but […]
