Teeth, Bones & X-rays!

An exciting and enjoyable afternoon was had hosting ninety Year 3 & 4 pupils from Highfield Primary School.

Supporting the KS2 science curriculum, the “Teeth, Bones and X-rays!” event covered a range of science and engineering activities, including examination of genuine Saxon remains, numerous animal skulls, Jurassic Coast fossils and a Halloween pumpkin with a hidden surprise (revealed by X-ray…).

Members of staff from Engineering & Environment, Biological Sciences and Humanities worked together to a tight schedule, providing a unique multi-disciplinary programme.

Thank you so much to Southampton University, Professor Sinclair and his team for giving Highfield pupils the science experience of a lifetime!
