Cell! Cell! Cell! A learning experience like no other!

Stardome comes to Birches Head Academy to wow our scientists

Our Y9 & Y10 Scientists are experiencing the Stardome today, funded by Higher Horizons+ The Stardome is a versatile learning environment which allows a subject to be explored in a way unlike any other. The 360 degree dome enables learning in a completely immersive and interactive space, allowing the students to explore a range of environments as it wraps around them.

Today the students are learning about Cells. Use the link below for a trailer showing what our students will be experiencing!


Science teacher Mr Kyme said that he was “just as excited as the students, if not more so!”

Afterwards his students told him, “it was really good and really interesting”, “the dome was amazing and brought it to life” and “it made what we learnt in class make sense.”

Thank you to Higher Horizons+ for funding the Stardome today, and to Jamie Littlejohn for delivering the sessions to our students.
