Following a successful visit last year, FGCS once again opened its doors to Godwin primary school allowing students to investigate reversible reactions of substances in specialist science laboratories.
Lauren Brierley, Julie Burman and their team ensured over 100 pupils had two outstanding science experiences. Firstly, melting chocolate with the use of kettles, beakers, evaporating dishes and stirring rods. The pupils completed the experiment by returning the chocolate to its ‘solid’ state by pouring their melted chocolate into an ice cube tray, which was frozen. Secondly, a less tasty experiment was taught where salt solution was evaporated to leave a residue of salt. Students got to use Bunsen burners for the first time- a lot of fun was had by all!
Miss Saunders from Godwin emailed ‘On behalf of pupils and staff at Godwin, I would like to say a big thank you for your warm welcome and support during our Science investigation yesterday. The children really enjoyed using the facilities and the whole experience was enjoyable and educational.’
