STEM Ambassadors & Room 9

Today we had a visit from our P7 STEM ambassadors who came to teach us about the Water Cycle. It was really nice to have Boo and Amy in our class. We were very impressed with the activities that they did with us.

The first game was ‘Weather Charades’ and Mr Allen was very surprised that some us had never ¬†played this game before. He said we might get to play it with our families on Christmas Day. It was really hard to mime out different weather to our group but it was good fun.

The main activity was to learn about the Water Cycle. We had to do an experiment in a jar with the rest of our group. We got a jar with hot water and food colouring, we then added hairspray to make clouds. When we added ice, it caused condensation inside the jar. At the end we added food colouring to make it look like rain. During the experiment we noticed that there wasn’t a lot of condensation so next week we are going to try the experiment again to see if it works better with boiling water.
