Extended Schools - Science and Engineering Clubs - Amersham

Description

Following a successful visit to a science and engineering club in Cornwall, newly-appointed head of science Gemma Beacon visits The Amersham School in search of further inspiration.

The Amersham School runs a science and engineering club so popular with students that there is now a waiting list to become a member.

Gemma, who is aiming to set up her own club, discovers how it appeals to girls, incorporates a robotics project, provides cross-circular focus and supports other departments.

Gemma also identifies seven key concepts that make Amersham's club an exceptional science and engineering club.
