The science department at Whitby High School and 30 of their Year 10 students had the chance to see and hear five of Britain’s top scientists, all working at the cutting edge of their specialist subjects.
Pupils were able to see famous scientists including Professor Robert Winston and Professor Jim Al-Khalili.
A series of lectures provided a fast moving and exciting experience at the end of which pupils had the opportunity to raise issues with the scientists.
The visit was intended to generate further enthusiasm for science amongst GCSE students.
Some students liked particular subjects such as Bruce Hood on the human brain.
