  • 27.06.22 Science Week - Biology

    Published 27/06/22, by Christina Farmer

    Today was the start of our Science Week, and we started with biology (study of living things).

    We started the day with a Science assembly where we watched various experiments that helped us to discover how density of matter makes some liquids float on top of others and how this can create a 'lava lamp' with the introduction of carbon dioxide, how air pressure can push an egg into a bottle, how air resistance and density or different gases allowed Nemo to fly across the hall and how we almost made icecream with the help of salt.

    During the day, we made up our own exercise routine, without the use of equipment, to help us maintain a heathy lifestyle. We also practised the crucial skills of being a scientist - resilience, patience and creativity - when making an origami model of an antibody. Using microscopes, we had a detailed look at some materials close up and discovered how they were formed.
