Staff and Students Enjoy Biology Week 2013

Wednesday 23rd October 2013

The week of the 14-18 October saw Queen Anne’s School celebrate Biology Week. The week was packed full of activities which were enjoyed by students and staff.

On Monday, the Biology department ran a biology themed sweets and cakes stall. The stall included brain lollies, body part sweets and Edible DNA kits, as well as some delicious cakes made by our dedicated science ambassadors. The stall was a great success and raised £100, which will be split between two charities, Tutu desks and Jeans for Genes.

Tuesday’s activity was a famous biologist’s quiz. With twenty faces to identify, it was quite a challenge but many took part and the winners will be announced soon.

Wednesday was a wet and windy day but the Eco club braved the elements and set up in the quad to help people pot up a beautiful plant. A great number of girls joined us to plant a Pansy or a Viola to take home with them. In fact, so many people were interested in potting a plant that we ran out!

On Thursday lunch time, the science ambassadors assembled in the quad for biology busking. There were many activities on offer, including mirror writing, optical illusions, a bones quiz and a dog IQ test. Mr and Mrs Rich’s trainee hearing dog proved to be very clever indeed!

For the final day of the week, we were lucky enough to welcome a guest speaker from The Royal Veterinary College. This provided the girls with the opportunity to learn about the path to becoming a Vet and offered invaluable information and advice.

Biology Week 2013 was a most successful week which inspired and encouraged both staff and students to take an interest in this field of study. The Biology department hope that everyone enjoyed the various activities and would like to thank the science ambassadors for their hard work and everyone who took the time to contribute, or take part in this week.
