Test Tube Tasha Wows With 'Mad Science'

This week Mrs Roberts, Crackley's Science Coordinator, championed the cause of all things science with a spectacular Mad Science show. Pupils were amazed and entertained in equal measure as they learnt about science.

They saw water disappear (courtesy of sodium polyacrylate), toilet paper fly (explained by the Bernoulli theory of lift) and to cap it all off a genie release (by virtue of gaseous oxygen release when two compounds were mixed).

There were plenty of chemical reactions on show, and experiments that firstly appeared as magic soon made sound scientific sense.

Many thanks to Mrs Roberts for organising the event. The popularity of Mad Science club shows that the subject of science is alive and well at Crackley. All Club applications need to be handed back to the office to ensure they are processed, so please don't delay.
