Science Week 2023 was a whirlwind of excitement and exploration for our 3rd and 4th class students. The week kicked off with engaging virtual shows that ignited our curiosity and set the stage for a week of scientific adventures.

On Monday, we tuned in to the SFI Curious Minds live show, where we were captivated by captivating demonstrations and experiments that brought science to life. The show sparked our imaginations and instilled in us a newfound appreciation for the wonders of the scientific world.

Midweek, we welcomed Scientific Sue to our classroom for a magical science show that had everyone spellbound. Her captivating performance transformed everyday objects into tools for scientific discovery, leaving us mesmerized and eager to delve deeper into the world of science.

On Wednesday, our very own Ms. Hayes transformed into the Wizard for the day, leading us on a journey of scientific exploration. With the help of her trusty apprentices, she guided us through a series of hands-on experiments that challenged our minds and expanded our understanding of scientific concepts.

And the week culminated with a truly extraordinary experience – a Zoom call with the Cell Explorers! We joined them as they embarked on a virtual adventure, extracting DNA from a banana and revealing the intricate workings of cells. The live experiment was a captivating climax to a week of scientific discovery.
