Along with Ashingdon and Hockley, a group of Year 5&6 Plumberow pupils took part in a Science Workshop hosted by Greensward Academy!
The objective of the workshop was to see which solution would give better colours for fireworks. Their task ... to design a new firework!
Using Bunsen burners and a selection of chlorides and sulphates the pupils experienced working in a real science laboratory! They also found out why different metals give off different colours when they burn!
A Great Experience!
