The Splendid Science Fair!
On Tuesday 9th June 2015 there was an amazing science fair that was held at Gillespie primary school by yr6. The fair was from 09:30 – 04:30 pm.
This was an astonishing event where children from Duncombe (yr6) and Grafton (yr6) primary school came. There was a man who bought in chameleons, a bearded dragon, water dragon, a frog and a tarantula.
The stalls were paint beats, glow in the dark, fruit batteries, terrific tornados, let it frozen snow, boom box, lab_13, manuka honey project, egg drop, balloon rocket and volcano escape.
Getting in touch with Madagascar
The Lab_13 committee Skype chatted with a charity worker and a scientist called Lala from Madagascar. The time there was also different by 2 hours which was roughly 10:30 in Madagascar.
We found out that 80% of plants seen in Madagascar are seen nowhere else in the world. We were shocked to find out that in Madagascar the schools books are very old and they write with chalk and mostly sit on the floor and many of the teachers are not paid for 6 months and when they are paid only £5.00. We had the idea of a science or Lab_13 related fundraiser to help out with education charity Azafady and finally we discovered what you call someone who is from Madagascar: Malagasy!!!
