Pilbara News - - Education - Court­ney Fowler

■ 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.”

Noah Ken­wor­thy and Ed­die Giles, both 7, experiment with mag­ni­fy­ing glasses at Bayn­ton West Pri­mary School’s Science Day this month.
