Science Club 2019
At science club on week three we went to Kingsmill and we did a bug hunt, pond dipping and made a rainbow nature chart.
In week one we made bubble blowers and experimented blowing bubbles on different surfaces.
See the photos below.
At Science club we made bracelets using special beads. The beads appear to be white but once you go out in the sunshine they change colour. This shows that you may need to apply sun cream.
We also made popping rockets using water and alka seltzer tablets. The rockets flew high into the air making a popping sound. This surprised some of us.
We also made balloons inflate by using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.
We had a lot of fun tonight!
