Kristina CastleScientist in Residence – Lab 13

 

 

Lab_13 is a science lab in our school, dedicated to showing pupils how exciting science is, and developing their natural curiosity into scientific investigation. What we do is lead by the pupils’ interests and questions, completely independently of the curriculum. Children from every class get the chance to come to the lab in small groups, and are given the resources and guidance to investigate their own questions scientifically.

The lab is run by a committee of 8 pupils from year 5 and 6 (ages 9-11). They are responsible for the day to day running of the lab, as well as exciting events such as the lab_13 Lectures during British Science Week!

As their Scientist in Residence, I am based full time at the school. I guide and support the children in organising the lab activities and developing experiments and investigations. I run afterschool clubs and holiday workshops to further engage our keenest young scientists. We also work with other schools: providing science CPD for teachers, and practical science workshop days for pupils.
