Earlier this week, pupils from Years 8, 9, 10 and 12 attended a live stream by renowned astrophysicist Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell from the Royal High School Bath, under the title, ‘We are made of star stuff’.
During her talk, Professor Bell Burnell simplified and explained the process of the creation and the asic elements in a thought-provoking way, while making it easy to understand. She also gave a history of the universe and how human beings are made from a scientific perspective. Below there are some ‘reviews’ from our Year 9 students:
“It was very interesting and enjoyable, and I loved learning more about the formation of the elements. It was also great listening to an amazing female physicist.”
“The talk was immersive as we learned in-depth about the development of our known elements which was both fascinating and engaging”
“I enjoyed the talk as I thought it was interesting to see how bodies are made. It was impressive to learn about the relationship between us and the stars.”
