KES hosts Cogit-8 Conference

On Wednesday 4th October, twenty Second Year pupils from KES joined forces with eighty pupils from other schools to take part in the annual ‘Cogit-8’ Gifted and Talented Conference. Pupils worked together to solve problems, crack codes and debate ‘big questions’. At the end of the day the pupils were entertained by ‘guitar physicist’ Dr Mark Lewney who delivered a lively talk on the physics of acoustics and string theory.
