On Thursday the 10th of August the Year 5 & 6 students had super fun day at Scienceworks. They attended a ‘Cool Stuff’ science show, visited the pumping station and had a ball exploring all of the amazing hands on activities in the Scienceworks museum.

Cool Stuff! A 30-minute science show using some ‘very cool’ liquid nitrogen demonstrations to illustrate the properties of solids, liquids and gases. Changes of state, expansion and contraction were all demonstrated using lots of fog, froth and fun.

Get Pumped! –  Students used a museum iPad that included videos, animations and other media to bring to life the amazing engineering feats involved in the construction of the Spotswood Pumping Station in the 1890s. They heard some stinky stories from the straining well and explored the magnificent Engine Room.
