This year the theme for science week was, 'The Power Of Science'.
We investigated the power of chemicals by soaking an egg in vinegar. We predicted what might happen to the egg shell. After one day the hard egg shell turned soft and squishy like jelly.
We learned about the power of pressure with this can flip experiment! This shows us the pressure that airplanes use when taking off.
We explored the power of motion with this marble experiment. When a marble collides with a stationary marble the energy is transferred to the second marble.
Sarah came in to talk to the children about her work as a forensic scientist. Sarah said that a good scientist always asks lots of questions. She was very impressed with all the children who asked lots of interesting questions about examining clues from a crime scene. Sarah uses a microscope to examine DNA samples. She showed us a great powder analysis experiment. I think we may have a few future scientists in room 2a.
