5th and 6th class went to a Discover Science show last week. Sue the scienctist showed us some experiments. It was a lot of fun.
- Experiment 1: She got a balloon with water and a hairdyer and she put the hairdryer to the the balloon and it floated up to the air and after a minute it came down again because the heat makes it float and so when it went cold, it came down again.
- Experiment 2: Sue got a vacuum and she put the black bag on the floor and put a stool on top of the bag. Sue got the volunteer to sit in the bag and hold the hoover until the bag hand no air inside it.
