Students studying Science at Cronton Sixth Form College were blown away by amazing guest speaker, Professor Averil MacDonald, who joined the College as part of STEM Week to deliver her world famous Fantastic Plastic lecture.
Throughout the gripping session, Averil performed numerous experiments and demonstrations outlining the vast amounts of weird and wonderful uses for plastic and how polymers are used in many different ways.
Our students were also joined in the audience by local partner schools Ormiston Chadwick Academy, Sandymoor High School, Penketh High School, St Gregory’s High School and Lord Derby Academy, all of which were impressed by Averil’s brilliant lecture.
David Petticrew, Programme Area Leader for Science at Cronton Sixth Form said, “This has been such a fantastic lecture with so much information on offer for our students. We can’t thank Averil enough for joining us during our STEM Week and we hope to welcome her back very soon.”
