Year 10 Science Camp

Applications for the Year 10 Science Camp 2020 are now open, closing on Monday 13 January.

The 2020 Year 10 Science Camp week will take place between 6 – 10 July. 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 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 plant species.

  • Research historic herbal medicines in our historical archives
  • Look for new medicines that have beneficial anti-inflammatory properties
  • Learn about plant compounds and how to extract them
  • Tour the laboratories across the Norwich Research Park
  • An individual placement day in a laboratory
  • A poster presentation of your work

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”.
