In our unit of inquiry ‘How the World Works’, G1 students have been enthusiastically engaged in our Scientist of the Week project, where each student presented a science experiment to their classmates. We delved into hands-on activities, exploring static electricity, experimenting with the interactions of acidic and basic ingredients, and exploring the properties of magnetic and non-magnetic items. The classroom

Grade 11 have been learning about the structure of atoms, including the effects of electron excitation. The colours in the image are produced as a result of electrons in metal ions becoming “excited” after taking on energy through a process called “absorption”. When the electrons lose energy again, they emit characteristic wavelengths of light and we can identify metals by
