On Monday 13 April College welcomed members of the College community, dignitaries and contributors involved in the £2.5 million refurbishment of the new Science Centre.
Guests had the chance to explore the facilities, observe pupil-led experiments and experience a demonstration of the new 3m wide interactive periodic table, the largest interactive display unit of its kind in Europe.
The Science Centre was officially opened by BAFTA Award winning filmmaker and scientist, Dr Max Whitby. Over the last decade, Dr Whitby has worked in close partnership with Theodore Gray, prominent science author and co-founder of app development agency Touch Press, to develop a series of projects around science education, chemistry and particularly the periodic table of elements. This has led the formation of RGB Research Ltd, a company dedicated to the creation of the world's most beautiful periodic table dispalys - the Cheltenham College periodic table is clearly a fine example of this, displaying an array of artefacts relating to coresponding elements, along with an interactive touchscreen.
