British Science Week

Posted on: March 12th 2019College Events

British Science Week ran from 8th to the 17th March.  It is a national celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).  At De Lisle Year 7 and 8 students had the opportunity to extract their DNA, experience the ‘bangs and bright lights’ of chemistry and make spectroscopes and beauty products.

Pope Francis was a scientist before he became a priest. He has said that the Church has great “gratitude to the men and women of science for their efforts and commitment in favour of humanity” and that through science we can understand God’s plan.

For Science Week, Acts of Worship were delivered jointly to all students by the Science and R.E Departments.  Both subjects ask questions about our world.  Students were encouraged to recognise that, while science often tells us how and religion tells us why, by putting the how and why together, we gain a deeper understanding.
