The Netherhall School involved in BBC R4 podcast
On Friday 9 December The Netherhall School welcomed Greg Foot from Radio 4’s “Sliced Bread” into one of their year 7 science classes. Greg’s visit was to record for a podcast evaluating which batteries gave the best power and value for money. Year 7 were extremely excited to be part of this and rose to the challenge in helping to get to the bottom of price vs performance.
The test started at 9am and finished at 4pm and when Greg returned to school to find out what had happened, he was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of the students who also returned at the end of the day to discuss the results.
Miss Girardi, Teacher of Science at The Netherhall School said: “We are extremely proud of our year 7 students who took part in this experiment.”
