This week saw the first meeting of our new science club supported by The Dukeries Academy and some of their A-Level students. The group runs on a Thursday after school and had been arranged by Mr Latkovski. Children from across school taking part and from the sound of their comments it was a great success.
“I enjoyed the soda snakes we made out of a certain type of soda. I t made the snakes black and very delicate. We tried to conduct energy through pieces of fruit to light up a light bulb, but it didn’t work. We tried a lemon, orange, apple and pear.” Holly class Ireland.
“I really enjoyed the soda snakes, I also loved working with people from different classes.” Madison class India.
“I loved the soda snakes: it was interesting because it was similar to how you make cotton-candy.” Kitty class India.
“I really liked the fruity batteries we created. We tested which fruit would conduct electricity to the light bulb. We tried an apple, pear, orange and lemon! Unfortunately we couldn’t get it to work.” Amelia class India.
“I loved the soda snakes. I also liked trying to light a bulb using fruit to carry electricity.” Mackenzie class Ireland.
“I liked the stuff we did in science club. I liked the soda snakes the best because it was interesting. I enjoyed it a lot.” Olivia class Canada.
“I liked how we did the growing dust activity called soda snakes, because they were really weird and we got to feel them!” Joel-Mackenzie Cope class New Zealand.
“I liked doing the soda snakes, it was fun! I really enjoyed going to science club because we get to do experiments. I liked working with people from different people and people from the Dukeries because they helped a lot.” Keaton class Canada.
“I loved the first session of science club because the first experiment we did was the soda snakes, which was where we made a volcano shape with sand and put some sugar in it and set it on fire and it made a huge snake (mine was the biggest!). I can’t wait for the next session!” Dylan class New Zealand.
“I loved the first session of the science club because we made fruity batteries. Fruity batteries were good because we cut fruit in half and saw which ones conducted electricity to light a bulb. After we created soda snakes- this was also fun.” Jacob class China.
