The annual Science Symposium, is integral to the Trust’s Wide Horizon strategy.
How does the festival manifest itself in school?
Every year the GSS takes the Trust theme and considers the big science questions associated with them – Utopia; Protest; Green Planet – Protecting our World; Celebration – a Festival of Science and Reimagining Community.
Linking with British Science Week, the Royal Institute and universities, students design their own experiments, hypothesise and work with STEM experts in their field, culminating in a one day Science Symposium – link to brochures and photos.
Students have the opportunity to put their questions to scientists, both in the UK and internationally, with the most exciting questions being those which currently have no answer, further sparking curiosity and inspiring exploration for our Griffin scientists of the future.
