TEENAGERS tried their hands at college science experiments as part of a special trip.

Students from Year 10 at Manningtree High School went to Suffolk One college for a STEM trip where they were given the chance to try out three classes.

The youngsters took part in an A-level physics practical session where they investigated the frequencies of different wavelengths of light.

Students also got the opportunity to speak to further maths sixth form students and challenged themselves with Pythagoras tasks.

A spokesman for the school’s science department said: “In the final session they looked at the discoveries and challenges scientists are facing with the use of nanoparticles.

“The Year 10s took part in a range of activities relating to current nanoparticle technology.”
