Lab_13 Rosehill at the Nottingham Science Fair!

November 1, 2017

Lab_13 Rosehill was part of the Nottingham Science Fair in October! A group of pupils worked with Betti on experiments which they then presented to other groups of children taking part in the fair.

Pupils from Lab_13 Rosehill made lava lamps mixing oil, water and food colouring and adding an alka seltzer tablet – the gas produced pushes up through the water and oil in bubbles! This experiment was really popular with other children who all wanted a go at making their own.

They also did another experiment blowing up a balloon using the gas produced from the reaction between bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. The balloon fills with a gas that is heavier than normal balloons – when you attach them to a helium balloon, you need three of them to pull it down!

Pupils produced diagrams of their experiments and learnt about different experiments from other children at the Science Fair.
