Science Visit to Manor Beach Primary School 2019

Mrs Doherty along with our science technicians, Mrs Bethel and Mrs Pritchard, went to visit Year 5 at Manor Beach Primary School on 14th February.

The students were first amazed by the ‘Genie in the Bottle’ demonstration and the old favourite of mentoes and diet coke. We investigated which produced more bubbles; normal diet coke or caffeine free diet coke. We found the normal diet coke produced a much bigger fountain of froth!

The students then investigated the changes which can occur during a chemical reaction; so recorded observations such as the amount of bubbles produced, changes in colour and temperature changes.
