Science Exploration Afternoon

Yesterday, we welcomed year seven students from Loreto Convent School to join us for a Science Exploration Afternoon in the Prior Park Labs.

In Psychics, students got sparky as they learned how friction can cause static electricity and how this could ignite petroleum vapor or a Bunsen burner.

In Chemistry, the students were investigating how different flame colours can tell us which metal is present in a compound and how those compounds can be used to make colourful fireworks.

In Biology, students were looking at lung capacity in relation to sporting ability, as well as how the body utilizes the food we eat to create energy.

A fantastic afternoon for students to get a taster of how exciting science is at Prior Park School, thanks for coming everyone!
