Science Scholars


This term's Science Scholars tasks were a stimulating admixture of creativity, innovation and mathematical skills. Our budding scientists made their own Discus, threw them, measured the distances achieved and then made alterations with different materials and discovered any impact on their flight-worthiness. They blew bubbles and found how many seconds they took to travel various distances, and then used their maths skills to determine the speed the bubbles travelled at - it was a lightly breezy day and the bubbles hit a speed of approximately 12 kmh. Lastly, they made glue from vinegar, baking soda and milk. Our participants stuck lolly-pop sticks together which were then tested to breaking point with weights. Amazingly, the glue was strong enough to suspend 2kg from the sticks! Each scholar returned home full of their successes and looking forward to the next exciting day!
