Year 4 Scientists spent an exciting day at Thinktank, Birmingham’s Science museum. The visit consolidated their work on Solids, Liquids and Gases and also introduced the topic of Electricity and Circuits.
The girls took part in a changing materials workshop where they inflated a balloon using the chemical reaction of bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. They then made slime!
During the Electrifying Science Workshop the girls learned about circuits, static electricity, the Van der Graaf generator and the plasma globe. They also made a human circuit and played various games to reinforce the knowledge learned.
The girls also had to time to visit many of the galleries, have lunch and visit the gift shop.
