‘Spectacular Science’ for Year 7
Year 7 scientists were enthralled and eager to join in with spectacular science activities as part of British Science Week 2023
On Monday, we spent our science and maths lesson joining in with some great science activities.
We had to work as a team to construct the neatest density column using coloured sucrose solutions. House Seacole won, with Franklin a close second! Some of us made ice cream in under 10 minutes using dry ice with Mrs Blakey. It smelt great but we couldn’t eat it! Mr Short and Dr Bune made some fake blood using household items and showed how good it was to show forensic blood splatter. Dr Lota and Ms Blanchard made elephant toothpaste that shot into the air! We also tested how good our lungs were in a House competition where the House games captains had to blow into an indicator solution to see who could make it change colour the fastest. The session ended with the firing of rockets which made a massive bang but was great fun. It was a really spectacular start to British Science Week at BHGS.
