26/02/15 – Greenwood Academy

Today Greenwood Academy brought another 25 students to Newman University to do their practical investigations for their Edexcel P1 and P2 Controlled Assessments. The practicals involved investigating the relationship between the object and image distance from a converging lens and how the brightness of a bulb affects the resistance of an LDR.

The behaviour and effect of the students was amazing, even better than the first group that came along in January! They were a real credit to their school, please come again!

Many thanks to Hannah and John for all your hard work and support!
