We'll be keen to hear and see what else they get up to, with the help of some of our donations!
April 2019, and the fun continues
This term our young Scientists have been busy each Tuesday lunchtime doing lots of fun Science investigations and discussing the theory behind these. We have seen them creating spaghetti towers, growing chilli plants, making conducting playdough, having a go at the Steve Spangler bubble snakes and last, but not least, making their own glue and comparing whether semi- skimmed or skimmed milk leads to the strongest glue… no doubt this led to some fierce competition when testing whose glue was the strongest!
Science club members have also been lucky enough to see Mr Taylor and Mr Pearce, in an all-time first for the Teddington Science Department, demonstrating the jaw-dropping Prince Rupert’s drops shattering into hundreds of pieces, not to mention lots of other amazing demonstrations! All this is possible thanks to the brilliant Richmond Science Society’s funding, which we are very grateful for. A huge thank you also to our year 10 students who help to run the club every single week.
If you are a budding Scientist or just looking to be inspired with some super Science… please join us every Tuesday lunchtime 12:50-13:15 in Lab 2. Word on the grapevine is that the good old Van De Graaf generator is making a comeback very soon, as well as lots of new experiments alongside the classics!
