Maths visit to Thornton Science Park.

On Wednesday 13th of December, 34 Year 9 pupils, accompanied by Mrs Holmes and Mr Aubrey visited Thornton Science Park. We attended their Christmas Lecture, called 'Dangerous Equations'.  It was hosted by Marty Jopson (BBC One Show's resident science bloke).  For over an hour, we were entertained and informed.  Through Mathematical equations we learnt why a whip cracks and calculated that it travels at over 900 miles per hour, explored the pendulum of doom and the science of the karate chop.  A thoroughly enjoyable morning was had by all.
