Extended Schools: Science and Engineering Clubs - Newquay

Description

Newly-appointed head of science Gemma Beacon visits an excellent science and engineering Club with a view to setting one up herself.

The Newquay Tretherras School in Cornwall has one remarkable feature, a giant geodesic dome built in the middle of the grounds which acts as a central concept that all the activities of the science and engineering club revolve around.

Gemma identifies ten key concepts that could help in setting up a science and engineering club in accordance with best practice. She discovers that flexibility is as important as planning, and that incorporating ideas from students has led to the club's success.
