Irchester Experiments: at the Macmillan Coffee Morning! | lab13network

A couple of weeks ago, it was Macmillan Coffee Morning.  While parents were eating yummy food and drinks, we were showing some extraordinary experiments. The week before we had a lovely visit from Rick Hall, who gave us some great ideas and advice on science busking!

Our favourite experiments were: “marshmallow hands”, “oven tray sounds” and “hole in your hand”! Marshmallow hands consisted of a picture frame and some crisscrossed wire. What you have to do is put your hands together over the wire and rub them together. Your hands will feel like marshmallows or silk. This works because the…

Evolution of Slime | lab13network

Lab_13 Dovecote were very sad to see their long-standing Scientist in Residence, Dr Bryson Gore, leave the lab to train to become a teacher. However, they celebrated all the great work they’ve done with Bryson in his time there with a video about their favourite experiment: slime!

Watch the video below!

This is the first in a series of experiments that will form the Lab_13 Cookbook.

New committee off to a super start at Irchester. | lab13network

A fresh bunch of committee are joining us again this term: they were interviewed and chosen right back in July, so they’ve had all summer to think about what amazing things we’re going to do this term! We’re already thinking about our science busking for the Macmillan Coffee Morning, planning a brand new “Science in the News” report, and coming up with ideas for exciting new lunch_lab experiments!

Some of the new committee wanted to introduce themselves, so here we go!

My name is Kye and I joined the lab because I wanted to help out with the experiments, plus I like to help with all…

Lab_13 Koli – peukut pystyyn | lab13network

We are delighted to announce that our new Scientist in Residence, Claire Simpson, has arrived in Koli, and is staying at the artist in residence studio (handily above the cafe in the village).

Claire is a specialist in Forest School and will combine art and science during her three weeks with us.  Claire has also been working with the Nethergate School in Nottingham where there is another Lab_13.

Koli Koulu (the school) has also gone through some changes since last year when Joe was here as Scientist in Residence. We’ve doubled in size! Pupils from a neighbouring village are now coming…
