Big Science Day

Published on 29/03/19

As part of the Prep School’s Big Science Day to celebrate the end of British Science Week, Air Products ran workshops for Years 5 and 6. Pupils were able to experience the effects of liquid nitrogen on different gases and materials such as flowers and balloons. They also got to watch the thermometer plummet to astonishing levels when placed in liquid nitrogen! The most memorable moments would probably be hammering a blue tac nail into a plank of wood using a banana and watching soap bubbles explode in the playground! This was a fun and interactive opportunity for pupils to experience a new element and the fascinating ways it affects the world around it.
