Irchester Lunch_Lab: The science of sounds and string. | lab13network

This week in lunch lab we have been showing everyone how to use confuser phones and oven racks. The confuser phones are made of headphones tubes and bottles and the tubes are connected to the other side of the headphones. We had some challenges for everyone to do about sound like: they close their eyes and spin around and they have to point at the direction the sound was coming from. They guessed wrong because it sounds like the sound is coming from the left when it is the opposite direction. That happens because the tubes are crossed over.

Steps to succeed at dissecting a Lambs heart.

How to dissect a lamb’s heart.

Science in the News reporting at Irchester! | lab13network

All this term, a group of children from year 6 have been taking part in a project called: “Science in the News”.

They pick out any interesting looking stories that are about science, technology, inventions and nature. They read through the articles together, then each person chooses one article that they want to research more about, and writes up their own report about the science news!

Mrs. Tyrrell has been putting this together with year 6 and she has decided to place…
