British Science Week fun comes to Burnley College Sixth Form Centre

Students and staff at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre have been throwing themselves into innovative experiments as part of Science Week 2019.

The 10-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths is organised annual by the Vritish Science Association to encourage young and old alike to get involved in STEM activities and discover just how much these fascinating subjects impact upon our daily lives.

At College, a series of exciting workshops were staged with students - and staff - across all Curriculum areas encouraged to take part. Activities included embarking on a 'Journey to the Afterlife' which involved a complex mummification process (involving an orange) and a high-pressure 'Desert Journey' where participants were challenged to build an antennae tower on a base of dry sand against the clock.

In last year's record-breaking A Level results, students from Burnley College Sixth Form Centre received outstanding STEM results, with particularly impressive performances in the subjects of Maths, Further Maths and Physics.

If you're mad about Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths, our Tutors are committed to helping you expand your knowledge and skills and achieve the very best results you can. They're passionate about their subjects and our innovative teaching methods will bring the subjects to life before your eyes, making each class a real learning experience.
