Investing in Science    

Exeter’s Bramdean School is now at the forefront of teaching science for city pupils, having seen a major
investment in new equipment more commonly found in universities.

The independent school has also received new materials worth several hundred pounds from the Wellcome Trust
in connection with the 2012 Olympics.

Science is constantly advancing, so developing new techniques and adding more to the curriculum and the new
equipment will benefit pupils from kindergarten to A-level.

Dr Michael Ibbs, of the biology department, said the biggest investment had been in state-of-the-art data-logging
equipment with a range of sensors that includes light, motion and magnetism in physics, pH and temperature in
chemistry, heart and lungs in biology.

Several classes have already used a new professional range of microscopes.
