Nine students from the Years 7 and 8 science clubs at Tring School tried their hand at new skills and experiences at the Big Bang Science Fair at Uxbridge College.

Students met demonstrators from all areas of science, including the Institute of Chartered Engineers, and the Royal Society of Chemistry, as well as college lecturers.

They were able to try their hand at car building, engineering and plumbing, as well as setting a lap time round the Top Gear track in a simulator.

Key Stage 3 science co-ordinator Ben Jones said: “It’s fantastic to give these students an opportunity to explore the massive range of careers that can be pursued from a science background.

“These wonderful students have given every lunchtime this year to explore science outside of the curriculum, with the Year 8s producing projects for their Bronze Crest Award, and the Year 7s mixing science with business starting a basic cosmetic company.”
