In November and December 2015, both 5th and 6th class participated in a Chemistry Acid/Base workshop arranged by Cushinstown NS PA. The children tested a range of household products to determine if they were acids, bases or neither (neutral). They made a prediction, performed the experiments and caused some reactions (explosions/filling a balloon). Thanks to all of the parents who took part and also to Ms. Kneafsey and Furlong who participated and helped arrange everything at the school.
We look forward to this becoming an annual event for celebrating Science Week in our school.
