Our Science & Geography trip to Newcastle

On Thursday 8th March 2018, the snowiest day of the year, the Danesgate intrepid Geographers and Scientists set off on  an expedition to the North, where surprisingly there was no snow!  All the students demonstrated truly outstanding behaviour and we were exceptionally proud of them. 

We had an amazing time exploring Newcastle’s Centre for Life, where we watched “The Poo Show” in the Science Theatre, flew on giant bees in the 4D motion ride, explored the universe in the planetarium, tried out a bit of archaeology as we dug for  virtual dinosaur bones, investigated the brain and even carried out experiments including extracting DNA (whilst making sure we used appropriate PPE and safe working practices) in the chemistry lab.
