Messy Ooblek!

Great fun at science club tonight with dancing raisins and the non-newtonian fluid called Ooblek  
The boys made an incredible mess and the cleaners were less than impressed! Boys. need to grovel  the next time you see Paul,  nicky  and Sue. 
If you want to make Ooblek  at home, all you need is cornflour  and water. Lots of recipes online.

Science club at Noadswood with Miss Lovelock

Many thanks to Miss Lovelock for leading our Science Club today. We had great fun making green slime. Some children were messier than others! Take a look at Jasper's hands, not to mention his attempt at clearing up his table!
Our second task was to write notes using a chemical. Some of us drew pictures and watched the images magically appear when the chemical made contact with the white paper. 
At the end of the session, we watched Miss Lovelock make fireflies in ammonia gas! We turned the lights off and watched them appear when she added a very hot chemical to the ammonia gas.
This was a great session and we are grateful to Miss Lovelock for giving up her time to teach us. Last week of club next week...looking forward to seeing you for some fun with more hands on experiments.
