Y9 visit Rutherford's Den
by CGHS Admin - Wednesday, 22 March 2017, 10:22 AM

All Year 9 classes will be spending time this week at Rutherford's Den in the Arts Centre. Our students learn about the work of Rutherford and his contemporaries in the place where one of the heroes of Science actually did some experimental work. They learn through role play, using the interactive displays and the teachings of the experienced curators there. It's a lot of fun. Many thanks to Mrs Wilson for making it happen.
