UPDATED PHYSICS WEBSITE September 6, 2016

Posted by Mr Ferns in : Sciences , comments closed

Our physics department website has recently been re-designed.

Pupils are able to access a wide range of electronic resources to assist with home learning through the links to our departmental Glow pages.

There are also links to other information and websites where appropriate.

We hope that you find our website easy to use and informative but would welcome any feedback regarding suggestions for improvement.

The physics department website is currently undergoing development work which will hopefully be completed very soon.

In the meantime, pupils can access a wealth of electronic resources in the usual way through accessing our Glow pages.

PUPILS DEBATE NUCLEAR ENERGY March 24, 2014

Posted by Mr Sudding in : Uncategorized , comments closed

A group of S3/S4 pupils welcomed Dr. Bjoern Seitz from Glasgow University. Dr Seitz spoke to pupils about nuclear physics and described his experiences as a nuclear physicist. Pupils then improved their debating skills with help from Angeli Mehte and Suzanne Ensom from the English Speaking Union. Pupils then trialled their new skills debating the benefits of nuclear energy compared to renewable energy.

HUNTERSTON POWER STATION March 24, 2014

Posted by Mr Sudding in : Uncategorized , comments closed

A group of S3/S4 pupils visited the Hunterston Nuclear Power Station on the 4th March. The trip was organised by the Engineering Development Trust, http://www.etrust.org.uk/, and provided the pupils with an excellent experience. All pupils have studied nuclear fission and nuclear reactors as part of their physics course and are now able to link what they have learned in the classroom to real life. The staff and pupils would like to thank the staff from EDF Energy for providing such an excellent tour of the power station.
