Science X Factor Competition - Inter school - CCS March 2016

On the 17th March 2016 three children from Y6 represented the school at the annual Science X Factor Competition at Chipping Campden School. The event was  arranged by the Ogden Trust and was held in the Phiz Lab.


The teams from all the local cluster schools competed against each other in 2 activities.

1. Egg Race Challenge. The teams had to design and build safety protection for an egg sat on a car. The eggs were then tested on a ramp and the impact on the board at the bottom of the ramp was measured.


2. Group presentations based on Space/Forces - each school presented an investigation.  


3. Biology, Chemistry and Physics X Factor demonstrations - children voted for the best demonstration and for the 3rd year running Chemistry was the winner.
