Congratulations to the students in Mr Dutton’s Yr 8 science group for their excellent work in their Chemistry learning.

The class where challenged with designing and then building 3d models to represent their understanding of atomic structure – including the correct numbers of protons, electrons and neutrons & their relative locations within the atom.

There were a variety of designs and materials used from simple paper counters, to plasticine and even sweets and crisps!

The most edible model was produced by Andrezza Capstick & Kylie Allison-Howard…

Atom Model 2

The best model (as judged by Mr Dutton for its clarity, attention to detail & thorough planning) was awarded to Ana Braga & Summer Hitchen…

Atom Model 1

Well done Yr8, for your excellent models.
