Year 8 use science to survive in the wild

Year 8 have started to learn about magnetism in science – an attractive prospect you’ll agree!

When set with the challenge of how to find your way out of the wilderness, they learnt that a paper clip could actually save your life. With a little know-how and a leaf, a paper clip can be turned into a compass – just the thing you need to find your way back to civilisation again!

As you can see, some worked better than others. Still, if you ever need a ‘survival expert’ to get you out of a tricky situation, a Year 8 girl could come in quite handy!
