Year 4 Energy
This term, the Year 4's are inquiring into Energy and how potential is changed into kinetic energy. Each class visited the Middle School Science Laboratory to participate in experiments demonstrating these changes. Firstly, the students formed their hypothesis about each experiment, then they made a Styrofoam radio, an electric magnet to pick up paperclips and played around with static electricity to prove or disprove their hypotheses. They also changed silver spoons into copper spoons using a current and copper sulphate. It was so much fun and a great way to start the term.
