Our Visit From Glasgow Science Center


Yesterday 2 women from the Glasgow Science Center came to our school. Fetlar School also came for the experience. In the morning P1-3 had their session with them and in the afternoon P4-7 had theirs. Our session was a bit different to the little session. Our session was called disgusting digestion.We learned about the different stages of digestion. The first stage is your mouth then your oesophagus then your stomach and last it went through your intestines. After the older ones session the little ones and grown ups came and we had a session with little workshops. Some of the workshops where body puzzles, memory games and there was one that showed you what you might look like in ten years time. It also showed you what you would look like if you were drinking and it also showed you what you looked like if you smoked, if you smoked then you looked really wrinkly.One of the workshops was to real LUNGS, but they weren’t human lungs they were pigs lungs but pigs organs and human organs are very similar. There was a healthy pigs lung and an unhealthy pigs lung (they had treated it to make it look like the pig had smoked) you could pump up the lungs to see how well they would be able to breath. For the healthy lung it was easy but for the unhealthy lung it was harder. but I think one of my favourite workshops was the thermal camera it showed you how warm you were and how cold you were.
