Science Fair

As part of Science Week in St Declan’s we had a Science Fair in the hall today. Science is extremely important. It  has led us to finding out things that give us what we have today. In fact without science we would not have electricity which would mean no mobiles, internet, Facebook we would not have fridges to keep food fresh, television to entertain or even cars to travel in. A world without science would mean that we would still be living in a very different way to that of what we live today. Science is based on curiosity and how to’s. Today science influences so many different things. Science has influenced the medical industry that today reduces thousands of deaths every day. It has helped form the world that we live in today.

All classes prepared an experiment for the exhibition and children took turns to demonstrate them. All classes had an opportunity to look at all the experiments and had plenty of hands on time. Have a look at some of the experiments…..

Dancing raisins, materials melting, skittles, building materials, how to keep a snowman cold, electric butterflies, eggsperiment, lava lamps, three little pigs, paper helicopters, orange fizz, sound pitch, how germs breed, electricity, forces and gravity, rockets, heartbeats, capult forces, buzzer electricity, light, oobleck, storm in a teacup, magnetism, how plants absorb water.

Thank you to Ms Molloy for organising the Science Fare.
