Science Day

One of our local Secondary schools hosted a Science day for our Year 5/6's and we have had a blast. 
We experienced an hour and half each of 
Biology
Physics
Chemistry


In Biology we got to look at some very cool things under the microscopes. We learnt how to set up the microscopes so we could see these things well with lamps and natural light. 
There were fly legs, bug testes, bug ovary, leaves, wool and dandelion.





  
In Physics we made rockets and learnt about aero dynamics. 
We launched them to see how far they would go.
In the design phase we could make modifications and make our rockets fly better each time. 





In Chemistry we wore lab coats and goggles. 
We made slime and elephants toothpaste. Lighting the Bunsen burner made some nervous. 
We learnt about the colour of the flame and which one was the safe flame. \

 










A fantastic day.

  1. That looks like such a fun day! We did something similar like this earlier this year with our secondary colleges. It is a great way to introduce upper primary kiddos to be introduced to what high school will be like.
