“Colour symphony… lava in a cup… bending bones with vinegar”

These are just some of the amazing experiments that were conducted by our Grade 6s in Science Expo Week.

Assigned with the task to find an experiment to conduct: The Grade 6 co-operative groups researched and compiled hypotheses, restraints and variables that would impact the outcome of their experiments.

Each co-operative group put together a captivating Keynote to use in their demonstrations, sharing with observers their goal: What do they want to achieve? What equipment and ingredients will they need? Will there be any constraints and variables that could prevent the success of their hypothesis?

Each Grade 6 class was visited by the grade 4, 5 and 7 classes, getting the chance to conduct their experiment more than once. Experiments came to life, leaving our visitors in awe.

Excitement levels rose as we were visited by innovative educational scientist, Felix from Split Second Science. Grade 6s were quizzed with challenging questions and had to seek creative solutions in groups. Discussions of creating prototypes and identifying various outcomes with cooling and heating test tubes were discussed.

Grade 6s left inspired and full of questions and ideas. We look forward to Split Second Science visiting us again in the Fourth term to put their ideas to the test.
