We had another visit from Mr Zee of Elementary Science. He taught the children in the Junior Room all about magnetism. They had to make magnetic go-carts in pairs and later they raced them to determine the best design and function.
The children in the Senior Room worked on electricity by making circuits with motors and fans. Later, the children designed battery powered fans which blew pieces of paper and straws in races. The children really enjoyed the sessions and became quite competitive.
Last week, the children in the Senior room also worked on their own STEM projects. They designed and made wind pressure toys. We were learning about air pressure and pneumatics. They then went in groups and demonstrated how their toys worked to the Juniors. So… lots of science and engineering in the last few days.
