The Science Department at Liskeard School has once again been celebrating National Science Week in style.  This year, to mark National Demo Day, 86 Year 4 and 5 students were treated to an interactive demo session on the theme of ‘Change’.  After measuring how much their pulse changed during exercise, the students observed Mr Inger dissecting an Ox heart.  Following on from this, students learned about how the energy in the food they eat is changed into energy which can be used by the cells in their body; they burned Monster Munch and Wotsits to measure the energy released and Mr Inger burned giant methane fireballs to demonstrate the energy released during combustion.  This was all brought together through the annihilation of a Jelly Baby which was reacted with oxygen to demonstrate the true reaction which releases energy in every cell.  The year 4 and 5 students were supported by our very professional and knowledgeable team of Liskeard Science Leaders.  An entertaining morning was had by all and our visitors went back to their primary schools buzzing with excitement.

Year 7 and 8 students have also been celebrating Science Week with problem solving activities and by being given the opportunity to use equipment they wouldn’t normally get the chance to use; 7x2 carried out micro-scale titrations using phenolphthalein indicator and 8x1 made alka-selzer rockets!
