WELCOME TO

Griffin Science Symposium 

The annual Science Symposium, is integral to the Trust’s Wide Horizon strategy.

As we plan our fourth symposium, we are utilising all of the reflections and feedback we have received from you to make the next event THE most engaging, thought provoking and interactive of this Proud Tradition to date.

How does the festival manifest itself in school?

Every year the GSS takes the Trust theme and considers the big science questions associated with them – Utopia; Protest; Green Planet – Protecting our World; Celebration – a Festival of Science and Reimagining Community.

Linking with British Science Week, the Royal Institute and universities, students design their own experiments, hypothesise and work with STEM experts in their field, culminating in a one day Science Symposium – link to brochures and photos.

Students have the opportunity to put their questions to scientists, both in the UK and internationally, with the most exciting questions being those which currently have no answer, further sparking curiosity and inspiring exploration for our Griffin scientists of the future.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence

GSS 2022

This years event is most engaging, thought provoking and interactive of this Proud Tradition to date.

Science Leads planned and delivered a vast range of activities and experiences for pupils, working with external speakers and visitors, as well as all of Year 6 and Year 7 joining the live sessions led by the Open University Science Outreach Team. The focus for the live sessions was the Moon and the pre-learning in schools meant that pupils were able to engage with the science at a sophisticated level, as evidenced by the questioning.
