Incredible Science with Year 6s


Science Club Angus

This post is brought to you by Finn, Fletcher, Izzy and Onyx new Wairakei School Reporters.

We are part of the new Reporters Club at School. We are training to be school reporters, reporting on events and learning around the school. We will be interviewing students, teachers and experts. Our aim is to eventually have a video blog - a vlog!  Once a week we will let you what is happening around our school and report on major school events.

Fifteen lucky Year 6’s got a chance to work with Adriene, from Contact Energy at a Science Club. The Year 6’s worked with Adrienne and did lots of science experiments.


Science Club 2

The first experiment they did was about heat and fluids. They got boiling water and poured it into a glass trays. Then they got ice cold  ice packs and put them into the boiling water. The ice packs started to move around but  Adriene help them with the ice packs so they didn’t move around and they didn’t burn themselves.

After that they put one drop of food colouring

just on the side of the ice pack when you looked at the side of the glass bowl you could see the food colouring moving around the glass bowl.
