We experimented with Static Electricity. A big thank-you to Mrs Cammell for lending us the PVC pipes. We also looked at Optical Illusions, viewing some on line and then seeing if we could get the fish in the bowl and the bird in the cage. Lastly we made Sherbet so we could see another chemical reaction. We discussed what we see, think, and wonder. Lastly we commented on the taste and viewed on line how sherbet works. Science was fun.

Children had to zig zag, stop at a pedestrian crossing, make an emergency stop and try and glide as far as they could. It was so much fun!!

As a follow-up to Science in a Van we tried one experiment. Mrs Michael's and Mrs Zhu assisted whilst Mrs Dijkstra took photos. It was a bit windy and in our second attempt it blew in the direction of Mrs Michael's. Mrs Dijkstra had a gadget called a geyser tube which helped funnel the force.
The reaction happened very quickly and was very exciting. We watched an explanation on YouTube to help us understand how and why the reaction happened.
