Science Week

Science Week

We were very lucky that Mrs Porter organised some great activities during science week. Year 5 had a couple of speakers come in and talk about science within their industry. We were given the opportunity to ask lots of questions and find out about the travel industry, with Paul and Emma Barton, and different careers using science by Dr Tim Dewhirst, who talked to us about lasers, growing crystals and aerodynamics of planes.


We then had a whole day of science experiments on Thursday. Puffins built their own vessels to test how much they could hold and whether changing the boats surface area would impact the amount it could hold. They also built bridges, looked at finger prints and tested their taste buds, to see whether they were a super taster.
