Some may have thought that Silvermine Academy had started a brewery, but contrary to the smell emanating from our Natural Sciences classroom, we were in fact doing a very important experiment!

Our Grade 8’s were figuring out what makes Yeast grow. Does it love sugar like they do? And can I handle the smell that is given off?!

The Grade 8’s managed to grow some large balloons with their yeast experiments. Some were so enthusiastic that they actually exploded….all over the teachers desk….much to their delight! All in all some good science was executed, and astute observations were recorded for their first scientific report. Well done, Grade 8’s!
