Winchester children learn about kaleidoscopes at new science centre
STUDENTS in Winchester have been learning about art and science by studying the kaleidoscope as part on a new installation at the newly renamed Winchester Science Centre.
Pupils from Stanmore and Weeke primary schools and The Henry Beaufort Secondary School have been learning about the discovery of the Higgs bosun particle and the Large Hadron Collider to create their own scopes.
Three local artists and a local scientist have been helping the children develop their work through the exploration of collision through scale, colour, sound and image.
The project is part of 10 days, a biennial arts event whose theme this year is ‘Creative Collisions’, and has been developed in partnership with South East Physics network (SEPnet), a consortium of local universities which aim to inspire young people’s interest in physics.
The children’s work will be displayed as part of an art installation called Collider Scope at Winchester Science Centre, previously known as INTECH which opened last Thursday (October 24).
