Rocket Science: Shoot to the Stars!
On the 6th May, 2016, Coley's budding Scientist went to meet Loiue Stowell. We were fortunate to be able to ask her many questions about space. Here are some of the questions:
Did you know...
By the end of the day, we all felt like we were trained space cadets.
It felt like we were real astronauts ready to enter space!
What would you like to know about space?
We take great pride to inspire our young scientists to think scientifically. Inline with this, children have the opportunity to attend Science meetings and events. We believe in giving children a voice and allowing them to take ownership of their learning. It was most pleasing to see the Coley team really challenged the presenter and amazed the audience in what young scientists know today. 😃
Science Day By Jai and Nathaniel
Hooray it…Science Week!
We really enjoyed doing our science investigations. Working indoors and outdoor was great fun.
One of investigation was to find out how many books an egg can hold?
We found out that raw eggs are actually strong. It can hold 58 books. That’s a lot of books, imagine carrying all that. Some of the books were big some of the books were small.
This investigation has certainly changed our view on raw egg.

Science Day By Saijoshita, Sara and Ahmed.
On science day we did a special investigation and we saw how strong the egg are. We also learnt learnt how to make a volcano eruption and when it erupted it smelt like vineger.The eggs shell could stand 58 books and we learned how buildings stay stable and how engineers got their idea.My partner and I predicted that 10 books could hold on the eggs.
Science investigation: How strong are raw eggs?💭
Our team thought that the eggs would crack on 18 books.
When we did the investigation we found out it did not crack , it cracked when there was 58 books on top of it. When it cracked it splatered everwhere. When we did 32 books, we had to go back in to class to get more books.
This investigation was fun. We couldn't believe how strong raw egg are.

How strong can eggs be?
Walking away! Are they still standing or has it cracked?
Small but Might: Mini Volcano Investigation
When we done the investigation we were surprise that we created a volcano. We mixed vinigar and some powder or soder together. It was fun to watch it explode, especially when we put too much powder and vinigar altogether. We made sure to do this outdoor as it would be messy. We used a jar for the volcano.
All of year 3 liked it all very much and would love to do it again.

One more....I think !
I think it's starting to wobble...
I can do this....(I hope)
