On Nov 16th Simon Hill, a science and maths teacher came in to do some experiments with 2nd and 3rd classes as part of Science Week. We all gathered in Michelle’s room. He showed us stuff about Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. He showed us how energy worked and he used a plasma ball to show us how energy can get transferred. We went outside and he showed us elephant toothpaste. He used yeast, washing up liquid, hot water, and hydrogen peroxide to create foam. He showed us how the human body works. Using a dummy he showed us where all the different body parts are located and he took them apart. Using a gravity table and marbles he showed us how the Solar System works. He had a large ball in the middle and he showed us how the planets go around the sun. There was no magnet inside the marbles yet gravity pulled them together. We had a really exciting and interesting demonstration.
