W5 IDC Belfast visit


As part of Science Week 2011 classes 29f and 19g visited the W5 Interactive Discovery Centre in Belfast this week. Class 29f completed a workshop on Chemical Reactions which involved the students working in W5's lab to explore a variety of reactions including combustion, neutralisation, exothermic, endothermic and oxidation. Class 19g completed a workshop on Technology Trials which involved the students working in small teams to design and construct a racing buggy using K'NEX. After construction they had a test-and-improve session where the students then carried out a fair test to find the ultimate machine. Both groups also got the chance to explore nearly 200 interactive exhibits in the four exhibition areas while they were there. A great fun-filled and informative day was had by all involved.
