Year 10 Science Camp

The 2022 Year 10 Science Camp will take place from Monday 4 July until Friday 8 July.

Currently, we are planning to run the event in person at the John Innes Centre but will monitor the spread of Covid-19 and revert to an online camp if required.

  • Applications for the 2022 Year 10 Science Camp are currently closed – opening Monday 4 January

As part of Year 10 Science Camp, each evening students will explore how some of the world’s best plant and microbial scientists work on their research and learn about all the ways in which the science of today is the reality of tomorrow.

Find out how you too can become a scientist to investigate mysteries and change the world. For example, in 2014 our Year 10 Science Camp students helped identify a new fungus.

The week will start with an introduction to a practical experiment to carry out at home. You will need to attend every evening and carry out a small amount of work in advance of the week.

On their experience of the camp one student said “I definitely recommend this amazing experience. I’ve already shared a lot of my experience with close friends and family members, who all agreed that the week sounded great.”
