Up, Up and Away!

Last week we had some great opportunities and science experiments to help us learn more about aerodynamics! We are loving the science kits from Upper Hutt Science. The science kit last week had an experiment to help us design and test different paper airplanes. We also had the challenge of making an object fly from the ground to the top of the desk.

We were fortunate to have a special visit from Captain George! He taught us more about what makes airplanes fly and demonstrated how air molecules move around the wings of a plane to create lift.

Ultraviolet Rays

We have been learning about solar energy and the sun's ultraviolet rays this week. We tested different brands of sunscreen using UV beads to see which one was most effective. We also learned the importance of wearing sunscreen, even on cloudy days!
