Science Week at Oakfield

At Oakfield House School we have planned and delivered lessons that have been inspired by well-known scientists. All children have been encouraged to find out key facts about a scientist and participate in corresponding activities. This includes Isaac Newton who discovered gravity. Jacob Aall Bonnevie Bjerknes who was one of the founders of modern meteorology. Wilhelm Röntgen a physicist who discovered how to take X-rays. Edwin Hubble who played a crucial role in establishing the field of extragalactic astronomy. Ada Lovelace is known as “the first computer programmer” for writing an algorithm for a computing machine in the mid-1800s. (Please note Ava Lovelace’s contribution to computer science has been has been acknowledged and praised for International Women’s Day too). In addition to this some children have participated in Science lessons based on plants.
