School puts science activities to the test
■ More than 500 students participated in Baynton West Primary School’s Science Day last month.
Science teacher Peter Malins said students from pre-primary to Year 6 participated in seven science experiments, with the older students mentoring the younger students on the day.
“Students lear nt about ultra-violet light as they decorated themselves with UV face paint and made jewellery using beads that change colour under UV light,” he said.
“They explored sound waves by pumping bottles with air and making phones using hoses and funnels. They tested different bubblemaking solutions.
“They also used digital microscopes to study whatever they could find.”
