Science at Bryn y Deryn

Mr. J. Harris and Mrs. A. Pickett

BTEC L1 Science - Throughout the course the following will be covered:


Unit ASc6 – Carrying out a scientific experiment, which involves the learners developing a varying array of practical and experimental skills.


Unit ASc9 – Protecting the environment, where we cover endangered species, global warming and recycling. This leads to a project of having an eco-Christmas at school.


Unit ASc12 – Crime Scene and Evidence, where we learn all types of forensic techniques such as: 

  •  Fuming for fingerprints

  • Blood type analysis and hair analysis under a microscope.


We use these skills to analyse a mock crime scene and find the culprit.
