During our year 8 science masterclasses, we will look at a variety of topics with instructional videos, notes, worksheets, and small group classes led by a qualified science teacher. Students need to complete the topic assignments at least 24 hours before each class. The classes cover topics from biology, chemistry, physics and ‘how science works (HSW)’ from the key stage 3 science curriculum.
