Black History Science Assembly
Today we prepared and presented a science assembly to do with black history month so that the children at Gillespie could learn about black scientists. The scientist we based our assembly on was Mae C Jemison. When we were researching her life and achievements we found out she has two degrees in engineering and medicine. Our favourite fact was that she can speak Japanese, Swahili and Russian. She was born in 1956 so how old is she now? (we asked the children in assembly and Carla in year five gave us the correct answer – 58)
