Our teaching team are currently working hard to re-invigorate our courses and are in the process of developing new, exciting materials for each unit. As such, the resources available for S1 pupils on this website are now out of date.
All S2 materials are still relevant for our pupils to use.
The website will be updated in due course with the new topics; watch this space!
Not one for the queasy! The most recent experiment conducted at S1 Science club was a heart dissection. For gruesome pictures, click HERE!

A simple dash of some chemicals, then set alight! Fire writing was this week’s superb experiment at the S1 Science club and our pupils once again thoroughly enjoyed their experience!

All pupils in S1/S2 and in P6/P7 of our associated primary schools have now received a letter inviting them to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fair. This will be held on Wednesday 11 October between 6pm and 8:30pm. This event has been highly successful over the last few years engaging both pupils and parents in a variety of activities. We are delighted to welcome back some previous exhibitors, including the Glasgow Science Centre with their entertaining and informative show, Disgusting Digestion. We also look forward to welcoming new partners who will be attending for the first time. We look forward to an exciting and informative evening for both pupils and parents.
Last week in S1 Science clubs, our young scientists completed a famous and fun experiment; Elephant’s Toothpaste! By combining a range of chemicals, an extravagant and surprising reaction takes place!
More photos can be found HERE.
This week our Science club for S1 pupils completed flame tests, where different chemicals are seen to burn with different colours. This is particularly used in analytical chemistry to find the identity of unknown solutions. Pictures of the pupils completing the experiments are shown HERE.
The 12th of September sees Williamwood’s annual S1 information evening for parents. Those who visit the Science department will find out information about our courses, including our password-protected online resources for each S1 and S2 unit.
