British Science Night

British Science Night: 150 Years of the Periodic Table

 Dear Parent/Guardian,

At Cardinal Hume Catholic School we absolutely love Science and strive to share a passion for fizzes, pops & bangs that will not only entertain but get you to question your concept of what science is really all about.

The evening is absolutely free and will be taking place on Wednesday the 13th of March from 6:00pm till 8:00pm. This is an event designed for ages 10-18 and their families. There will be limited tickets available for each key stage on a first come, first serve basis. Visiting students must have a parent or guardian with them.

The evening is split into three equally exciting parts:

  • Science Fair: Get stuck in and explore a number of interactive stalls & shows put on by the students and staff of Cardinal Hume Catholic School, Durham University, Newcastle University, Family Learning and the Royal Society of Chemistry, as well as a planetarium with guided talks.
  • Beamish ‘Just One Spark’: An interactive chemistry show highlighting the science behind our history in the North East.
  • Firework Display: The grand finale. Watch a firework display on the back yard to celebrate the end of the evening.

This evening is part of the celebration of British Science Week (11th-15th March) with events being held in school  throughout the week, and is being generously funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Physics.

Places are limited.  Please reserve your tickets by returning the reply slip attached to this letter or by contacting the school reception ( Include your surname and the number of tickets you require. You do not need to pick up these tickets – we will keep them at the door for you.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. T Targett & Miss. H Cope
