Junior Science

Junior Science is studied by all First and Second Year pupils at King Edward’s and comprises a selection of topics from Biology, Chemistry and Physics.  It is designed to provide a solid foundation for IGCSE separate sciences.

Pupils undertake curriculum trips such as Intech Science Centre, near Winchester, and the Science Museum in London.

Junior Science Club

Junior science club takes place regularly on Thursday lunchtimes during the Autumn and Spring terms.  Science club is open to all first and second years and gives an opportunity for students to do experiments that don’t normally fit within the junior science syllabus.

Typical experiments are:

  • Explosions
  • Air pressure and eggs
  • Fairy liquid boats
  • Rocket balloons
  • Leaf litter
  • Heart disection
  • Imploding cans
  • Mirror eggs
  • Green eggs
