Professor Lord Robert Winston hosts annual King’s Ely Osmond Lecture

Lord Winston Visit March 2019KING’S Ely was delighted to welcome British professor and television presenter, Professor Lord Robert Winston, into school to talk to excited students and staff.

Lord Winston hosted the school’s Osmond Lecture on March 15th, an annual event established and endowed by the Old Eleans’ Club to commemorate the career of Leonard Osmond, who was a Science teacher at King’s Ely from 1930 to 1972.

Lord Winston,who is a British professor, medical doctor, scientist, television presenter and Labour Peer, spoke to students, staff, families and friends of King’s Ely about ‘Why Bother with Science?’

The riveting lecture was the perfect way to conclude King’s Ely’s Science Week celebrations, which involved some of the school’s youngest pupils in King’s Ely Acremont right the way to students in the Sixth Form.

At King’s Ely Acremont, children learnt all about ‘reducing, recycling and reusing’, including upcycling old milk bottles into Elmer-inspired elephants and thinking about what issues dropping litter can cause. ‘Zoe Zinc’ from Mad Science Cambridge also visited the young scientists for a day filled with chemical reaction fun and hands on workshops.

At King’s Ely Junior, highlights included fascinating heart and lung dissections, and investigations into human-powered electricity and recycled art. Students also took part in an intriguing project called ‘Waste of a Week’, where they collected all of the non-edible dry classroom waste from King’s Ely Junior and King’s Ely Senior during the course of Science Week. The bagged rubbish was placed in a compound close to the Science Block at King’s Ely Senior and throughout the week, students investigated it from Biological, Chemical and Physical perspectives within their Science lessons.
