Hemyock Primary School’s Science Week 2021 got off to a great start with everyone thinking about what it means to be a scientist – if you are interested in the world around you and want to find out ‘why?’ then you are a scientist!
During the week we enjoyed being scientists, carrying out different investigations and activities every day, including Naked Eggs, how to expand a balloon without blowing it up, Dirty Pennies, Build a Tower (and a chair!), and Water Cycle in a Bag.
Each day we studied and celebrated a different British scientist – here you can see Mrs Gill interviewing Dr Kate Evans (an animal biologist who has studied elephants, set up and is director of the charity Elephants for Africa). We also studied Professor Sarah Gilbert (Covid vaccination scientist), Sir David Attenborough, Dame Jane Goodall and Professor Brian Cox.
