Just before half term, Toby, Harry, Eleanor and Matthew went to the Big Bang Science Fair at Pennthorpe School.
Toby and Harry took part in a project to discover the best material to prevent astro burns. They came up with a way to mimic children falling on the astro and found a food item that behaved much like skin. Do come and take a look at their project outside of the science lab. We were very proud when they finished in 3rd place in the competition.
Our second entry was a wonderful project by Eleanor and Matthew. It was so good that I think the judges didn't think the children could have done it on their own. We tend to have food on celebration Fridays in form and they wanted to know if we could be spreading germs if we shared from the same bag. Eleanor and Matthew produced a wonderful display and spoke to the judge with confidence and enthusiasm. They have given up break times and lunch times for the last few weeks to create their display.
All the children made the most of their time at the event, visiting the many displays and events on offer. They even made it into the front row to watch an amazing presentation about the fastest car - the 'bloodhound'.
