Atoms day at Hollickwood Primary

Our strong collaboration with the Ogden trust continues to support science teaching & learning in local primary schools. This term we have been working with Geraldine cox the artist in residence at Imperial College London, culminating in four academics delivering a whole day’s art science workshop on atoms for year 4 students at Hollickwood primary.atomskid 2.1
