Science lessons at the Beech Academy are shocking!

Year 8 students were learning about static electricity this week.  As part of their lesson, students had the opportunity to receive a static charge from the Van de Graaff generator.  Mr Poole also had a go but he didn’t have enough hair to stand on end! The photo shows Louise who did start to see her hair rise as the strands of her hair were repelled from each other by the static charge. Well done to all of those who were brave enough to have a go in the name of science.
