Fire, Earth, Water & Air Show

In this show we witnessed the melting, freezing and evaporating powers of energy. Using a variety of cutting edge fiery and explosive demonstrations, we watched one EXCITING and ENGAGING science show and learnt so much about the world around us. We learnt facts about chemical and physical changes as well as different forms of energy. They even threw in some facts about fireworks!
Ready to watch & learn!

BOYYYSSS!- Tiago, Ace, Harry, Ewan, Archer & Dwayne

Tiago, Josh & Ben!

Kateyln & Mikayla

Science man Steve

I wonder what happens when you put a balloon in liquid nitrogen?

I scream, you scream, we all cream for... ROCKETS!

Dirty Nappy Science!


The big finale!

The Sound Effects Show

Ready to watch!
Trying to make a noise by vibrating our hand. We learnt that for our movement to make a sound we would need to vibrate/move out hand 20000 times per second!

Mikayla was selected to help the presenter play an instrument

The presenter playing a Chicken Cup instrument! We learnt that the smaller the container the higher pitched the sound. 

Old McDonalds had a farm instrument style! Ewan was lucky enough to be asked to join in!

Snack time!
