Science Week 2018: A License to Experiment
Students from Years 7 to 10 at North Bridge House Senior Hampstead celebrated their annual Science Week with an array of activities, which included creating giant bubbles, making their own hand warmers, building spaghetti towers and more.
Pupils learned about exothermic reactions by producing their own disposable hand warmers, mixing water and calcium chloride in a zip lock bag. Students were challenged to build the tallest tower using only spaghetti and marshmallows. There was also an opportunity for students to see a rat dissection.
One Year 9 student, Nehal said:
“It was a great week full of fun activities from making hand warmers to dissecting a rat’s heart.”
Sarah, a Year 7 pupil said:
“Science week was amazing and we got to do so many cool activities such as making giant bubbles, lip gloss and bath bombs, but my particular favourite was dissecting a rat. I thought this was amazing because we got the opportunity to see exactly how a body works.”
The science department works hard to coordinate a timetable which includes something for everyone during Science Week, and it is always great to see so many students taking part, whether they are there for the gory stuff or for the ice cream!
A special thanks to Year 10 student, Rhanee, who captured everything that happened throughout Science Week with some great photos.
