Back on the Leading Edge

On Thursday 19th April three Year 9 students took part in ‘The Leading Edge’ debate session. In this session the students had to form opinions on topics such as “Should all drugs be tested on animals before humans can use them?” and “Should drug use be allowed in elite sport?”  These topics naturally caused a lot of difference in opinion but our group were very mature throughout, using their scientific skills to form opinions that were backed up by Science that they have learned in Sandhill View.

The students were interacting with SEVEN other schools and, I’m pleased to say, they were absolutely brilliant.  These students were a real credit to our school and I’m sure they will continue to enjoy The Leading Edge Project and are already looking forward to their laboratory days in May, where they will be looking at how cancer cells spread in the body and how certain medications can cure cancer.
