St Olave's Science Week 2018Young scientists at St Olave’s have been trying out a host of new experiments as part of British Science Week 2018.

Activities in the lab included setting fire to bubbles, getting electricity from fruit, creating dry ice mist, the ever-popular elephant’s toothpaste reaction, and creating film canister rockets.

In a new experiment, the St Olave’s Science Club gathered in the playground to see how far and high a dry ice bottle rocket would fly.

Anja Miller, Head of Science, said: “Science Week is always a great time for our pupils to see the theories and principles they’ve been learning about in action. They’ve all eagerly engaged with all our demonstrations and experiments this week, which will be of great use to them in their studies over the coming months.”
