Saturday Science at Dulwich College

Science is one of the most stimulating and exciting areas of the school curriculum.  It can also be unfamiliar and a little daunting when children start their secondary schools in Year 7, as they may not have encountered work in laboratory science before.

The aim of the Saturday Science scheme is to provide pupils with an exciting introduction to practical science and thereby help to improve their confidence before their move to secondary school. Using Dulwich College’s state-of-the-art science facilities, pupils undertake hands-on investigations in Chemistry, Physics and Biology, spending 5-6 weeks on each subject.

Taught by specialist Science teachers in small groups, pupils build up an understanding of how to conduct experiments and how to draw and record appropriate conclusions.  There are occasional presentations and demonstrations on fascinating scientific topics and a chance to try using new equipment and methods of learning. The Saturday Science Scheme also provides an opportunity for children to make new friends and grow in confidence to face the challenges of their forthcoming move to secondary school.
