EXPERIMENTS took over Halls Head Primary School as students celebrated Science Week with a range of activities.

Local stores might have been running low on vinegar and bicarbonate soda supplies as students used them as key ingredients for a number of experiments alongside other science-based activities including marble runs, rocket launching, the creation of a frozen moon and a whole school Science Fair.

Sophie, Lyla and Khloe-Rose enjoy a science activity.

Halls Head PS science teacher Kylie Staples said the celebrations also included visits from Nitro Mike, who introduced the students to the properties of liquid nitrogen, and Rangs Boomerangs who discussed the aerodynamics of throwing sticks and boomerangs.

“The kids’ interest and enthusiasm has been wonderful and they have really demonstrated a growing understanding an appreciation of science concepts,” she said.

Jhett, Hannah and Jayla get their fingers into some goo with the help of their teacher.

“By celebrating National Science Week as a whole school, kids get to not only be immersed in science through lots of high interest hands on activities, they also are celebrating science as a part of the bigger community.

“We just wish bicarb and vinegar was on special this week.”
