Grant Instruments donate unstirred water baths to Melbourn Village College
Pupils at Melbourn Village College have benefited from new scientific equipment thanks to a donation from Grant Instruments.
Melbourne Village College is a secondary school located in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire. As part of Grants ongoing support within the local community, the college was chosen as a deserving recipient of the water baths.
In January 2017, Grant Instruments donated four unstirred water baths from their JB Aqua range, including three 2 litre models and one 5 litre model to Melbourn Village College. The new baths will enable pupils at the college to work on smart materials during Design and Technology lessons.
Mr Stephen Reynolds, Head of Department, Teacher of Design and Technology Commented:
“The equipment is used by KS3 and KS4 as part of their work on smart materials such as Polymorph. To maintain a temperature of around 65 degrees means that the students can constantly develop and modify their designs as they choose. This has allowed for some very good designs to be made and even allowed for the use of colour dyes to be included in the final outcome.”.
Libby Knight, Sales Manager – EMEA, at Grant Instruments added: “I am so pleased that we have found such a deserving recipient for the unstirred baths, and it is particularly rewarding for us to help a local school that is part of our history, attended by a number of our colleagues during their childhood years. We look forward to seeing the results of the hard work of the students, to which we have made a contribution.”
