Science Week has finished for another year but what a great week we had.

We held essay, poster and photography competitions and students were invited to investigate if insects are the food of the future and to contemplate why the Earth is magnetic.

On Thursday, together with a team of highly trained TYs, the science teachers opened the laboratories at lunch time to the school community.

The lab experiments and demonstrations at lunch time proved to be very popular with the boys who dissected sheep hearts and lungs, experienced flashing flame tests and magic colour writing. Their hair stood on end in the Physics lab while they were investigating static electricity with Van de Graff generator.

Our First and Second years took part in table quizzes that broadened their scientific knowledge. The students recognised a strawberry, a cats tongue and various other slides in the ‘What’s Under the Microscope Competition’.

The great TY Mouse Trap car race took place on Friday with the winning car travelling a distance of 10 metres before it ran out of momentum. Eggs were dropped by parachute from the top floor of the building and we are delighted to report that the “eggcellent” engineering skills of the TYs saved all of the eggs from destruction.

Staff were also invited to solve science dingbats with Ionic “Daniel Craig” proving to be a difficult Bond!

Thank you to all the staff and students who organised a very enjoyable Science Week at C.S.N.
