Year 13 Biology

This morning our year 13 Biology students carrying out a kidney dissection. The students have to learn about the structure and function of a kidney for their exam in January.  What better way to do that than by cutting one open?

Luckily the students were not too squeemish; they all managed to successfully dissect the kidney and identify some of the internal structures. This is a very skilfull procedure as the internal structures are small, and one slip of the scalpel could end in disaster.

Year 12 Physics

Our year 12 Physicists have been studying electricity- alternating current and power.

In this lesson they were using an oscilloscope to measure the peak voltage V0 given out from an alternating current (ac) power supply.

They had calculated the direct current (dc) equivalent of this, calculated the root mean square voltage Vrms. The students then used a multimeter to measure the value of Vrms and so check how close their calculated answer was to the value given on the multimeter.
