We had an exciting start to the week with a visit from Professor Bubbleworks! Our scientist Chris talked to the children about transport and the science behind it, from horsepower to electric cars.
He showed us how the internal combustion engine works and tested different fuels. We looked at forces to show how jet engines work, and the scientific effort behind developing electric cars.
Speaking of electricity…….the children had LOTS of fun, and some brave volunteers even had their hair stand on end with the Van de Graaff generator!
Hopefully this has inspired our children to be imaginative and innovative – who knows who might create the next great scientific breakthrough?!
