We had a fun Science lesson in P2B today. We tried to make magic fireworks with milk, food colouring and fairy liquid.
We filled some trays with milk and popped food colouring in it. Then we dipped cotton buds into fairy liquid and then kept them still in the milk. When our experiment worked, the fairy liquid reacted to the fat in the milk and sent the food colouring shooting across the tray like fireworks. However, the nature of science is that it does not work flawlessly every time so some of our experiments weren’t as effective as others.
Great teamwork from everyone! 🙂
We worked with a partner to build a Lego robot and then we used a computer to write a short computer program. This made the robot move and cheer, it was very exciting.
P3/4 enjoyed their Science workshop this afternoon! We learned all about different types of energy and electricity. Did you know that wind is a source of electricity? The electricity is generated in massive wind turbines! We made our own wind turbines, it was so much fun!
Primary 5 are investigating their specimens from last week’s trip to Craigmillar Woods.
