Scientists in Room 15

The girls had great fun last week learning about rockets and designing their own models during Art class.

We also conducted some Science experiments during Science week. One of these was using different solutions including salt, vinegar, water, ketchup, salt and vinegar together and coke to clean copper coins.  We made some interesting findings and had some very shiny coins, as a result!

 

Another experiment involved making  paper hover crafts and seeing how far they would travel. The girls had great fun with these.
