Professor Cranium returns to Crookhorn
Yesterday morning Crookhorn College welcomed Year 2 students from five of our local primary schools to take part in a series of conundrums set by Professor Cranium.
The event centres around the Professors' Cavern of Wonders, which houses a series of challenges based on English, science, mathematics and languages that would put our young guests to the test.
Students had a limited time to visit each station and solve its conundrum, with points being awarded for accuracy and teamwork. Each station was hosted by a selection of colourful characters, including Willy Wonky explaining the science behind sugar, Monsieur Chocolat in his candy factory, Doctor Octopus demonstrating melting points, Señorita Miller teaching Spanish and our own Rachel Riley playing Countdown; as well as the host himself, Professor Cranium.
The race to first place was an ever-changing one but it was Purbrook Infant School who finished all their tasks with the highest scores in total.
Congratulations to the winning team and to all the wonderful students that attended the event. A special thank you also needs to go out to our fantastic teaching staff for their involvement.
