Science week in Senior Infants.
Listed below are some of the experiments carried out by senior infants.

Dancing raisins:
Raisins are denser than the liquid in the soda, so initially they sink to the bottom of the glass. The carbonated soft drin releases carbon dioxide bubbles. When these bubbles stick to the rough surface of a raisin, the raisin is lifted because of the increase in buoyancy.

As an experiment we dropped a piece of scrunched up paper and a stone from the same height and at the same time and made predictions on which would fall first. They both fell to the ground at roughly the same time because gravity is the same for all weights.

Beech Trail: We estimated and recorded how many children could join hands around the tree. We collected leaves and made leaf rubbings.

Washing Hands:
We completed an experiment to show the importance of washing hands before eating.
