Mad Science

 

As part of our electricity topic, we invited Mad Science to come in to work with the children.  The children were able to experiment with balloons and see how static electricity affected their hair and drinks cans.  Some of the children were lucky enough to use the Van der Graaf generator and saw their hair stand on end.  The children learnt about lightning and how it can set fire to trees very quickly.  We had a fantastic time and it was a brilliant way to start our topic.
