St. Mary's science enthusiasts head for Royal Society Exhibition
Students from St. Mary’s travelled to London last week to learn about the latest cutting-edge developments in science and technology. Fourteen enthusiastic members of the school’s Science Club visited the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition at the organisation’s Carlton House Terrace HQ just off The Mall, close to Buckingham Palace.
The Royal Society is the world’s oldest and most celebrated learned society dedicated to the sciences. It was founded in 1660 and its Presidents have included iconic names such as Christopher Wren, Samuel Pepys and Isaac Newton.
The Summer Science Exhibition is widely regarded as a must-see showcase for British innovation, focusing on everything from antibiotics to x-rays. Visitors are able to enjoy hands-on experiments, panel discussions and a wide range of family activities.
St. Mary’s College now has close links with the Royal Society after last year it became the first school on Merseyside - and only the second in the North West - to be recognised as an Associate School by the organisation.
The St. Mary’s students were accompanied on the London trip by Head of Science Bob Johnston and his colleagues Linda Clark and Liz Shaw. Mr Johnston was making his final college trip as he retires this summer after teaching at St. Mary’s for 39 years.
He said, “It was a fantastic experience for these pupils to visit the home of British science and see some of the exciting research that is in the pipeline. Travelling to and from the capital in a single day was a long and tiring journey, but well worth the effort thanks to the quality of the exhibition.”
