Today Room 12, from 6th class, took part in a science workshop in the library. Scientists from w5, along with the assistance of the pupils, performed many experiments. They launched a ‘teabag rocket’ to show how hot air rises and that by spinning a plastic chicken around and around demonstrates how the force of gravity pulls on the moon and the earth. These were just two of the experiments carried out. Pupils enjoyed experimenting and look forward to doing some of them in the classroom. Everyone enjoyed themselves but also learned new experiments to demonstrate science!
