BRIGHT sparks at The Arnewood School in New Milton drew up a whole different way of looking at science when they took part in special workshop.

A ‘science meets art’ workshop was held for the students in Years 7, 8 and 9 when they were challenged to link their scientific knowledge with acrylic paint.

The after-school workshop for gifted and talented students was led by Mal Phillips – a retired engineering and crisis management expert and a volunteer for the Intech science centre at Winchester.

Professor Brian Rainford from Southampton University also joined to introduce the nature of scientific concepts and describe how particles collide at the Hadron Collider in Switzerland.

Students then experimented with a wide range of colours and different paints to depict colliding particles in stunning scenarios.

Assistant headteacher at The Arnewood School, Sabine Stroud, said: “The workshop provided so much scope for our students to develop their creativity whilst furthering their understanding of science.

“It was an immensely fun session and at the end every single student had produced a brilliant piece of art, which they could take home.”

Some of the students’ scientific works of art can be viewed on the school’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/Arnewood School
