June’s been a month full of magic moments so far, so here’s a selection!
Holly’s Marvellous Magnetism
Holly is a primary age student who had not been to Lab_13 before. We were exploring magnetism, ‘fishing’ for metal objects, painting with paperclips and making patterns with iron filings. Holly was unsure at first but after encouragement she continued to explore independently for around 15 mins. She especially loved the iron filings. The member of staff with us was really surprises since in class Holly usually has a short attention span!
Static Electricity Stuns Staff
Over the past few sessions in Lab_13, pupils have been exploring static electricity and the upper school in particular has been enjoying this topic. However, it was the staff engagement that really stole the day! What a video it would have made with crazed looking staff frantically rubbing balloons and plastic sheets in their hair. One member of staff who came to both the upper school sessions was boasting about being able to attend ‘double science’.
Lab_13 Rosehill Celebrations
Lab_13 Rosehill is looking forward to its celebration day on Tuesday 4th July. Scientist in Residence Betti will be there running sessions all week for pupils and staff, including a Big Bubble Day!
