Gillespie News: Scientific Fun Club | lab13network

The committee came up with the idea for a new lunchtime club, which we are calling the Scientific Fun Club. The reason why we started this club is so that children can learn more science in a fun way. We would like to hear if you have any ideas for a final name for the club. Here are some pictures of what happened in the club so you can see what we did.

Children could choose what they wanted to do – fun and games with a scientific twist

Children reading science books and playing science games

First of all we checked who wanted to come in each class. There were too many people who wanted…

Magic Moments at Lab_13 Rosehill! | lab13network

There have been a few really magic moments at Rosehill in the past few weeks that we’d like to share with you!
Joshua

Having conquered the technique of the ‘marble run’, using a large cardboard tube and ping pong balls, Joshua is now developing ways of creating the required incline of the tube by leaning it against tables so that he can look inside the tube and watch the balls roll down.

Adrian

Adrian  worked carefully and methodically to make three musical instruments during the Lab_13’s study of sound. When Betti, Rosehill’s Scientist In Residence, told him he could take them home,…

This morning the Lab_13 committee decided to act on the contents of a confidential letter (it was a piece of paper that we wrote on last week), which held the plans for the next term. Now we can unveil the hidden plans for next term, written by us, the committee.

The Irchester lab_13 Lectures! | lab13network

Tuesday 14th March

For a long time we have been planning our Lab-13 Lectures, and tomorrow is the day! We are going to present our lectures about Sound to about 400 children and teachers! Jamie says that he is scared, but James is just excited. We have planned our talks in partners: Elizabeth and Izzy about how sound is made by vibrations, James and Ellie about how sound travels in waves, Ty and Sam have some experiments about how we hear sound, and finally Jamie and Charlotte have some great facts and recordings about how bats and dolphins use ultrasound. We’re about to go and practice at…
