This year the A-Level Physics students went on an exciting trip to Manchester and Alton Towers - but it wasn’t all shopping and Krispy Kreme doughnuts! Some students experienced the physics of free-fall first-hand when they went on the ride ‘Oblivion’, which consists of a high vertical drop into a deep black hole (see what we did there? Black HoleJ that’s Physics too!). ‘On Air’ the ride covered 852m in 85s and had a G-force of 3.5g.Even while waiting in the queue for another ride, one eager student used the equation PE=mgh to calculate the potential energy at the top of one of the crests of the rollercoaster ‘Rita’.

Two sixth form students from Glenlola Collegiate, Bangor and Royal Belfast Academical Institute have spent the summer helping the RSPB carry out research as part of a Nuffield Science Bursary project aimed to find out whether provisioning of chicks was sufficient to support a productive colony of common and arctic terns breeding on a small artificial island at Belfast Lough RSPB Nature Reserve. The students, supported by the RSPB education team, presented their Nuffield Science research at a celebratory event at Queen’s University Belfast recently.

The UFTM hosted a different type of visitor when the Glenlola GCSE Astronomers spent a weekend there. Instead of looking around the historical buildings the Year 10 and 13 girls were definitely looking upwards!

On Tuesday 9 October we had a group of Swiss guests in to visit the school. The group came over from St Gallen which is celebrating 1400 years after St Gall left Bangor and headed through Europe, finally settling in Switzerland and founding the town of St Gallen which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
