Ms Ní Chárthaigh’s 5th Class did some fascinating science experiments with the help of Áine’s mum and some of her students. Thank you to our visitors for a truly educational experience. Daniel M. and Andrew H. wrote about it.

SCIENCE

On the 16th of June Celine Marmion and her team came to St. Brigid’s N.S 5th class. To start off, they talked to us about matter and dry ice. Then every pair of students got a glove and a balloon. We inserted dry ice into that which changed from a solid form to a gas which inflated the balloon and glove. We then put them to the side and let them enlarge.

The second experiment was about solid dry ice turning into gas in when it met fairy liquid and water. The result was the dry ice turning into gas which created bubbles that overflowed the tube.

The third experiment was about making our own lava lamps, we started by getting a small tube and filling it with oil, water, citric acid, bicarbonate soda and coloured dye. We let it rest until the oil and water separated making oil bubbles rise and then descend making the lava lamp effect.

At the end we looked at how big the gloves and balloons were from the CO2 (dry ice)
