3rd Class review 'Science Day.'

Today as part of Science Week our science class went down to the Hall to see a scientist perform experiments. My favourite experiment was the one where he used the bottle with  H₂O₂.  

H₂O₂ is different than water because it has an extra bit of oxygen that does not fit in it. Just like a group at school, the oxygen is the new kid that won't fit in immediately.

When this powder called magnesium was poured into the bottle, the extra oxygen became steam and shot out. This became heat and it started to melt when it cooled down and it was shrinking.

One other experiment I really liked was when the Nutty Professor had a bottle of water with a fake fish with an anchor at the bottom and another fake fish floating at the top, and we had to figure out a way to get the ‘top fish’ to the bottom. It sounds easy but it wasn't because there was air in the top of the fish's head, so it was able to float. When he squeezed the bottle it squeezed all the air out of the head and it sank.

I really liked the show and would give it 'five out of five.'

Today as part of the County Council’s Science Fest our class went down to the PE Hall to see a ‘mad scientist’ perform experiments. One of my favourite experiments today was the ‘straw’ one. The man kept cutting the straw and every time he blew in the straw, the sound got higher.

The next one that I liked was the leaf blower. Alisha sat on a big round wooden sheet and then the man put the leaf blower in the square hole and turned the leaf blower on. He swung her around and it looked really fun. I wanted to try it but I couldn't. The scientist that was there was very funny and made everyone laugh.
