STEM in P6/7

Primary 6/7 had a visit from engineer George Burns today. Mr Burns will be working with us over the next few weeks, to help us with a science-based topic about electricity. Today we learned how important electricity is to our daily lives. He taught us about different sources of electricity, such as mains and batteries. We also found out the meaning of insulators and conductors, and discovered what types of materials were insulators and conductors. Finally, we investigated electrical circuits, and discovered how to produce electricity to light up a bulb, make sounds and power the motor to make a fan spin!
