Science Inquiry

In preparation for our Pae Ake Science Day in Week 6, we kicked off the Explore section of our Science Inquiry learning with a session on acids and bases. Excitement levels were high as they learned to form a hypothesis and conducted their first fair test!

Check out some of the Wonderings the class came up with after they were done experimenting. I predict we might have some future scientists in LC11.

Why does acid blow up?  - Lucas Warren

What happens when you mix an acid and a base? - Toby, Troy, Malakai, Tristan

Why did the base turn green instead of blue? - Amelie

How do the colours change? - Julian and Corbyn

Why does it stink? - Lily and Yuzuki

What is an acid? - Rueben
