Jodrell Bank

Year 9 enjoyed a trip to the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, to develop their knowledge of radio signals as part of their science studies! 

The students enjoyed exploring the centre's fantastic interactive displays and activities, all centered around space and the science behind their huge telescope.

Students visited the Planet Paviliion and the Space Pavillion, before stopping for lunch at the site's famous Lovell Telescope. We especially enjoyed trying out the Whispering Dishes: These demonstrate, using sound, how the curved shape of the Lovell telescope amplifies faint signals.

Thank you to Mr. Jones and Ms. Wheelton for a great trip!
