Natural Science 2

SCIENTISTS

In this second term, they have been our teachers,

UNIT 3: MICHAEL FARADAY, he discovered electromagnetic induction, the principle behind the electric transformer and generator. This discovery was crucial in allowing electricity to be transformed from a curiosity into a powerful new technology.

Laura e Isabel surprised us with a creative exposition.  Not only did they make a poster but they also reproduced one of Michael Faraday’s most famous experiment.

It was amazing! Until now, the best work of the year.

UNIT 4: WILLIAM THOMSON, LORD KELVIN 

Kelvin was a Scottish mathematician and physicist who developed the Kelvin scale of temperature measurement.

Throughout his work Thomson’s overriding goal was the practical utilisation of science. He achieved fame through his work on submarine telegraphy.

And, at the end of the term some students remembered the work of scientific women

MARIE CURIE: was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, in Physics, and with her later win, in Chemistry, she became the first person to claim Nobel honors twice.   She discovered radioactivity, and, together with her husband Pierre, the radioactive elements polonium and radium.

ROSALIND FRANKLIN: is known for her role in the discovery of the structure of DNA.

JOCELYN BELL BURNELL: Bell Burnell’s depth of knowledge regarding radio astronomy and the electromagnetic spectrum has earned her a lifetime of respect in the scientific community.

Who will be the next?

We are looking forward to meet them!

HANDS ON PRACTICE IN halloween-title

You can buy a tiny canister of slime at the toy store, but it is easier, cheaper and so much more fun to make it at home or… in the CHEMISTRY LAB!!

Slime doesn’t do what we expect it to, because we expect things to be either a liquid or a solid. We usually don’t expect things to kind of exist in this middle realm.  It is a fluid, but not a regular liquid!
