Science Week

From making lava lamps to creating glowing goo...

Eureka! Science Week came this week, and with it a true assemblage of wild and wacky experiments! From making cloud chambers and lava lamps, to dropping egg parachutes and creating glowing goo, the full scope of scientific experimentation was explored, often forgetting how much clean-up was required at the end. The MIV to the V had an action-packed programme in their Science lessons, too, including a unique hands-on rainforest workshop delivered by Ranger Phil and his giant African millipede and tarantula friends. The more meditative among us enjoyed gazing at the stars in the Auriga Stardome, a visiting inflatable planetarium set up in the Great Hall, whilst the livelier attended Explosion Society or tried the very popular custard-walking challenge. And, as if all of that weren’t special enough, donning our colanders, we were even treated to the (rather cloudy) solar eclipse this morning.
