KS3 Cross Curricular - Science Gets Fruity



The science of sound is brought to life by a series of cross curricular workshops at St Saviour's and St Olave's School.

Pupils are inspired by visits from a physicist, a botanist, and a musician, who help them combine science and engineering with music and physical theatre.

The cross curricular day for Year Seven begins with an exploration of the physics of sound through drama. Next up the students get the chance to make music with a range of unfamiliar percussion instruments.

Finally they focus on the science of plants in which they are set the challenge of making their own musical instruments out of fruit and vegetables.
