During Science Week, we conducted several different experiments. We looked at designing and creating the best container to ensure an egg would not crack when dropped from a height. We looked at what happens when milk is mixed with soap and how different molecules react with each other. We chose certain materials e.g. paperclips and straws and had to build a bridge spanning 30cm . Finally, we were fortunate enough to have Jennifer from GSETSS come in and do some great experiments with us. We looked at energy and used a balloon stuck to a straw to demonstrate different types of energy- kinetic and sound. Jennifer also showed us how lungs work by putting a marshmallow in a syringe. We rounded up the day with a classic- M&Ms in hot and cold water to see how colours dissolve in different temperatures. It was a great week and we really enjoyed exploring, experimenting and working together.
