During science week here in St. Corban's Ms. Dunne very kindly invited everyone down to the hall to take part in various different experiments provided by her class. Here’s a quick overview of the results.
Station 1 displayed a skeleton and an iPad. The object was to use the iPad to play a game in which you built a body using the application provided.
Station 2 involved an experiment using the fact that oil does not mix with water. Unless, of course, you add washing up liquid.
Station 3 boasted numerous tests on eggs. Will it crack? Not if you cover it with cling film!
Station 4 experimented on the making of lemonade. Yummy!
Did you know that raisins can dance in water? Well, Station 5 proved they do!
In Station 6 they created lava lamps using a 2 litre bottle of vinegar, salt and more.
If you rub a balloon against your head for a long time it creates static electricity which can be used to pick up small pieces of paper says Station 7.
Station 8 involved a game in which you attempt to fish some paperclips out of a bowl of water using a magnet.
In Station nine they showed you some optical illusions, proving that you don’t always see everything that’s there.
To cap it off, Station 10 was equipped with the fact that you can blow up a balloon using a bottle, baking soda and vinegar.
Thank you for reading and we hope everyone who participated had fun.
Have a nice day!
