Science Week at St. Matthias N.S.

The junior room participated in 5 experiments last week as part of acknowledging it was Science Week. We had such fun learning about reaction from vinegar and baking soda during our volcano experiment. By using the same ingredients we caught the gas this time in our magic glove causing it to inflate. We created thrust in our rocket balloons and watched in amazement as when flowers get a drink – even paper ones they open up like unreal life! Our final experiment was probably our favourite as we produced static electricity in our classroom! We watched cereal dance and our hair was moving in the same direction as the balloons! What a super week. Big thanks must go to Lismore Heritage Centre who provided us with all the equipment and instructions. It was a big success
