About Year 7…

Year 7’s contribution to the success of Science Fair 2021 has been immense.

All students have been working on a variety of individual projects. The students made the initial choice of either undertaking an engineering design project or a scientific inquiry based investigation.

Year 7 has successfully investigated Physics, Chemistry and Biology related topics; such as the relationship between mass and velocity on inclined planes, temperature and viscosity, how plant growth is affected by ground coffee and if bath bombs can be made with alternative ingredients.

As is the nature of project based learning, students have had to showcase real-time dynamic problem-solving skills and reflect consistently on the effectiveness of their ideas and procedures throughout the course of this years Science Fair. It has been an invaluable learning experience that they have all excelled in.

“Preparing a science fair project is an excellent example of what education experts call active learning or inquiry… 

It is a very effective instructional method; indeed, it is recommended as a cornerstone of successful science teaching.”

Water Resistance Experiment by Aiden and Sam Year 7

How does shape of an object affect the time to get to the bottom of a liquid? There have many forces in Earth. For example: friction, gravity, air resistance etc. But now our main thing is buoyancy and water resistance. So how does the shape of the object effect the...

Does different types of hair (long, short, curly, straight) affect the amount of static electricity produced?

Does different types of hair (long, short, curly, straight) affect the amount of static electricity produced? Abstract: The object of our project is to determine which type cause the most static electricity. We used long hair (curly), long hair (straight), short hair,...

Metals in Hydrochloric Acid Experiment – Elavi, Jake, Yonny – Y7

What happens when you put metals into hydrochloric acid?   The objective of our experiment is to see what would happen to different metals if mixed with hydrochloric acid over the time span of 20 minutes. Our variables were the following metals: copper, zinc,...

Do different genres of music effect the rate of plant growth Ethan and Linus – Y7 Ethan and Linus

Our Hypothesis is If we change the genres of music will it affect the rate of plant growth? Objective/goal: The objective of our project is to determine what genre of music effects the plant the most. Methods/Material: we used soil, plastic pots, crest seed, ipads,...

Reflection: How does the shape of object effect the time to get to the bottom of a liquid

  At the start we thought that the disk and the cube is the fastest to get to the bottom but in the experience we found that the sphere is the fastest. First,we found that all of the shapes speed is very fast so we can’t measure the accurate time so we...

Will the size of the parachute effect the speed of it falling down? Larysa Year 7

Will the size of the parachute effect the speed of it falling down?  Abstract The objective of our project is to estimate and prove if  the size of the parachute effects the speed of it falling down. We used:  -eggs -small size plastic bag, two medium size and large...

Does Light Affect The Rate Of Mould Growth On Bread-Erik and Jerry-Year 7

How does the amount of light affect the growth of mould on bread? Background research paper Our science fair project is a project about testing the rate of mould growth on bread. For this project we need to know as much about fungus’s as possible and be able to use...

PH Affecting Plant Growth Rachel and Frank Y7

Plants have been around on Earth for billions and billions of years. They have already played an extremely important role in the history of human civilisations.  Plants are everywhere in our lives. They affect our eating, drinking, clothing, transportation and many...

Rocket to NASA Sky – by Seobin and Harisha Y7

Abstract: Question: Does changing the launch angle of a rocket change the distance it flies? Hypothesis: If the launch angle of a rocket is changed, then the distance that the rockets flies will change. Methods and Materials: We used 3 sets of water rockets, a big...

Does Noise Effect Plant’s Growth? Year7 Hayden and Dean

Abstract: Does noise effect the rate of plant’s growth? Objectives: To find out does noise effect the rate of plant’s growth, then find out is the effect good or bad. Methods and Materials: I used 1 iPad to play noise from YouTube, 1 headphone to play it...

What our educators say

Paul Clifton

I absolutely loved the variety of experiments that the Key Stage 3 students conducted, all of which were incredibly interesting. The detail in the write up was also very impressive. Well done Key Stage 3!

Cristina Ortiz-Zurita

It has been absolutely amazing to see our KS3 students so engaged in their Science projects, their originality and the amazing outcomes of them all. It will be no easy task to choose a winner, as they all deserve the first prize.

Suzie Lee

The range of experiments are highly impressive and we thoroughly enjoyed the visual experience and aspect of interacting with the experiments themselves.  The wonderful investigations have galvanized the pupils and teachers in Key Stage 1 to begin our own scientific enquiry journeys!
