Catalyst Science Museum

Lesson: Science

Class: Year 4J Year: 2021 - 2022

Today, 16/9/21, Year 4 visited the Catalyst Science Musemum in Widnes. 

In the morning, we attended the first of two work shops; it was on fair testing and working scientifically. We explored what a scientist looked like and what they do - work safely, oberserve, mkae predictions and then test fair, chaning only one small thing.

Before lunch, we had the opprutninty to explore the rest of the mseum and we really enjoyed the interaction elements on the ground floor. Here we could pretend to be a weather reporter using a green screen and an auto cue, catch cloths from a vaccum and find out which parts of the body were the warmest using a heat map.

After lunch, we had the second workshop which was called glorious gases. Here we used the knoweldge we had learnt last week in Science to sort items into solids, liquids and gases. After this, we made a rainbow using air pressure, made a fire entiguisher using bicabinate of soda and vinegar and finally made a vacuum and observed an even bigger one.
