A new £10m science centre was recently opened at ACS Hillingdon International School which includes seven new laboratories and features a specialist binocular microscope and reflecting telescope.
Opened by Mark Thompson, Astronomer and BBC Stargazing Live presenter students will benefit from the centre’s enhanced testing capabilities, such as the high quality Vernier temperature probes allowing them to conduct advanced experiments.
Dr Neelu Sharma, Head of Science at ACS Hillingdon said:
“This summer several of our graduating students won places to study bio-chemistry, pre-medicine, bio-medical sciences, physics and medicine at top universities. Our new science centre will ensure we provide the best possible resources for our students wanting to pursue an interest in the sciences at any level.”
Martin Hall, Head of School at ACS Hillingdon said:
“The new state of the art science centre and a wide STEAM curriculum will encourage broader student collaboration and discovery, enabling them to forge future science careers and giving them a clear advantage in the world of work.”
Another ACS school, ACS Cobham International School, has also recently completed major works at the school with the completion of a £15m boarding house that provides single en-suite rooms for all senior students.
