One of our Year 5 pupils has been very busy at home this week, completing a range of Science investigation! Well done and thank you for sharing your findings with us!
One of our Year 1 pupils completed the mentos and coke experiment. He made a tube to hold the mentos in and, with the help of his uncle, he made a slice in the tube for a butter knife to go through to stop the mento's going in the coke too soon.
“We took the bottle outside and took the lid off. He put his tube of mento's on top and stepped back and pulled the butter knife out. The mento's fell into the bottle of coke and reacted together causing the bottle to fizz up and out 'like a volcano'”.
“On Saturday, we went to the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry where we enjoyed some of the hands-on activities.
On the top photo he is trying to shake hands with his reflection – it looks as though his hand is coming out of the curved dome back at him, but of course it isn’t!
On the second picture, he is wearing ‘beer goggles’ which make it very difficult to walk in a straight line… he had to follow the trail on the floor and apart from a couple of small wobbles, he did really well!!”
This looks like a fun and educational place to visit!
“We learned about transformation of water when we change the temperature. He understood how the water cycle happens. We filled water and put it in the fridge to cool, made the water turn to ice by freezing it and then heating heated it to transfer into steam. When the steam cooled, he saw water droplets on a lid.”
