Medics Day at Wyke
Tomorrow, the Royal Society of Medicine’s popular Medical Careers Day will be taking place in Hull at Wyke Sixth Form College.
Applying to medical school can be somewhat confusing. So the RSM has put together a service for school students, which aims to provide information needed to navigate your way through the application process and getting into medical school.
This day offer’s school students guidance from experts on the application process for applying to study medicine and gives an insight into life in the medical field.
The event is aimed at year 11/12 students, but younger students are also encouraged to attend if schools believe they would benefit from hearing more information on choosing a career in medicine.
The day will inform students interested in a medical career on how to choose the right medical school, provide tips on their interview technique and discuss the importance of the right work experience. Students will also gain an insight into life as a medical student.
Wyke Deputy Principal Mark Rothery said, “We are delighted that the Royal Society of Medicine have chosen this year to offer one of their hugely popular Medical Careers Day courses in Hull. It’s great to see another facet of the National recognition we are enjoying as City of Culture – we are certainly more on the map!
I’m doubly delighted that they have chosen Wyke Sixth Form College as the venue for the event. This one day conference is open to all Year 11 and 12 students that are considering becoming doctors.” ... See MoreSee Less
STAR PHYSICS STUDENTS
Wyke A-level Physics students have recently completed ground-breaking research into the evolution of the solar system. During the summer, Eloise Buxton (former Driffield student) and Eve Ferry-Bolder (former Newland School for Girls student) conducted their research during a STEM event at the Milne Centre in the Astrophysics Department of the University of Hull.
Eve and Eloise were given a large dataset from several cosmological simulations of spiral galaxies. Eve was asked to characterise the relationship between the ages of stars and their kinematics. Eloise was asked to analyse the distribution of elemental abundance ratios (C/O and Mg/Si) which control the mineralogy of rocky planets.
Physics teacher Stuart Lyon commented, “In nature there is a loose correlation for stars near the Sun, in which old stars have higher velocity dispersion than younger ones. Something causes kinematic heating, whether it is bombardment of the disk by satellite galaxies or gravitational shocks due to spiral arms and giant molecular clouds continuously heating the disk.”
Eve was commended for showing how simulations compare with stars in nature. Eloise found that for the elemental nucleosynthesis models used in the simulations, she found rocky planets to be rich in olivine and metallic iron, with minimal pyroxene - often called ’silicon-rich Earths’ rather than truly Earth-like.
The students’ research was published and showcased during the awards ceremony at the University of Hull in September, to celebrate the CREST research event. Besides being an excellent addition to their CVs, Eve’s work received an iPad is recognition for her outstanding research. ... See MoreSee Less
LAST CALL for ROME 2018
To confirm your place on this Religious Studies trip please pay your £100 deposit by 16th October 2017 via ParentPay. If you are not an RS student, you are still welcome of the trip, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if this is the case.
Once the trip is declared viable the balance of £575 (£675 in total) will be required by 12th January 2018.
If there is limited interest all deposit money will be returned. Once a deposit is placed and the trip is booked, students are committed financially to the trip and are required to make the payment schedule.
An information letter that was distributed at the trip meeting is available from Claire Bhana (W19). If you have any further questions please contact me via email.
