Year 4 – Mad Science

Year 4 kicked off their brand new science topic with a bang this morning as Mad Science led a fantastic workshop.

They learnt all about static electricity through the use of a Van de Graaff generator, which raised a few hairs!

Children were introduced to the terms ‘conductor’ and ‘insulator’ and used themselves as a pathway to allow electricity to flow and light up a bulb!

A big thanks to Mad Science for such an informative and engaging workshop this morning. We can’t wait to find out more about electricity over this half term!
