Science Family Workshop

12 oktober 2016

Last week  BISS Puxi saw the children and parents of year 3 and 4 coming together for the first ‘Science Family Workshop’ of the new school year.

After Mr Hudspith set some balloons flying in Stage One, he then explained why this happens and set the children the challenge of harnessing this knowledge and challenged them to build a car that was powered purely by air. Students were only given a modest set of materials from which to build their air powered automobiles. These materials included water bottles, rubber bands, drinking straws, masking tape, a plastic cup, bottle tops and scissors. After a frenetic 45 minutes of cutting, sticking and blowing, students had covered the floor of Stage One and transformed it in to looking like Yan'an Lu.  There were cars of different shapes and sizes zooming and flying around, as the children (and their parents) had risen fantastically to the challenge set before them. This was a fantastic start for the first Science event of the new year and a huge thank you to all the children and parents who came along to make it such an enthusiastic and energetic event!
