We had a special visitor yesterday at John Brotchie.

Science girl! Also known as Abilene who just happens to be a John Brotchie graduate.

Under scientist Jane’s supervision science girl demonstrated the ‘elephant toothpaste’ experiment for us all to watch. It’s a great example of a chemical reaction mixing hydrogen peroxide with detergent and yeast.

Many of the children made the observation that the reaction is similar to that of the volcano experiment. This led Science girl to tell us about her lemon volcano experiment that the children can do at home with their parents.

Science Girl has her own YouTube Channel and if you are interested in either of these experiments or more science ideas then follow the link below.

I wonder if Abilene’s love of science began at John Brotchie?
