Burravoe Primary School

The Glasgow Science Centre


On the 26th of April the Glasgow Science Centre came before lunch time and after that they borrowed the P 1, 2 and 3s. They learned about body parts, and we learned about Disgusting Digestion. We started off with the One Minute Challenge where you need to eat 2 Cream Crackers  in one minute with no water, ( 2 played, one was me), to show how important saliva is. Then they showed us how the food was pushed down by muscles down  the oesophagus into the stomach with a ball and a round net, and at the end we got showed a poo chart and Mrs. Hay was chosen to be a poo catcher and we pretended that we were pushing a broken bus and then we made an imaginary poo! Mrs Hay as the poo catcher  caught the imaginary poo. After our lesson was finished the younger  ones came in and we got showed what type of things they had at the Glasgow Science Centre there were x-ray pictures, memory test, organ puzzle, brain puzzle, scanned sections of the body from above, a machine that tells you how you might look in 10 years time if you smoke or drink ( look at picture), pig’s lungs that you fill up with air a healthy pig’s lungs and pig’s lungs that scientists have made to look like a smoking human’s lungs, a board that you listen to make you hear a person with asthma a person who smokes and a healthy person, a skin magnifier, a memory test , a multi task box and a thermal imager.
