Science Outreach Opportunities

Our Science Outreach Programme at Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form is currently focused on Chemistry and Physics, and is looking to expand into Environmental Science in the 2023/24 academic year. Our programmes are currently available throughout the academic year to schools across Norfolk, and highlight various Science A Level, Career and Pathway options for students.

Read below for more information on the activities we have on offer and how to register.

Our team of expert teachers are offering visits to schools in Norfolk to deliver sessions beyond the science curriculum. These lessons can be delivered to schools during lessons or after-school and will be tailored to match the age range and ability of the students. The activities available are as follows:

Water Rockets: Forces and Aerodynamics

Catapults: Physics and Engineering (aimed at Primary and Early KS3)


Space: Sustainability in Space and Threats in Orbit

Flame Tests and Spectroscopy: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics and the Identification of Elements

We can also support schools who would like to attend Sir Isaac Newton with a wider range of practical activities, including the engineering challenge, and exhibiting the electric racing car that is currently being built by our Year 12 students.

If you would like to learn more and register for a session, please email

Cobholm Primary - Sustainability in Space Exploration and Engineering Challenges

On Wednesday 8th March, Dr North visited our partner school SIN-East to work with Year 6 students from Cobholm Primary, looking at sustainability in space exploration and some engineering challenges. The Year 6 students explored the danger faced in space as more satellites are now launched and low-Earth orbit is filled. For a more hands-on experience, the students had to save their "eggnauts" from being scrambled on impact, using a range of designs to allows their eggs to be dropped from a second storey window.

Many designs were successful, with the Year 12 students from SIN-East helping visiting pupils bring their design to life. To conclude the day of activities, students fired some water rockets and discussed energy transfers in place, not even letting the falling snow dampen their spirits.
