Science Magic Show

Primary 3 and Primary 4 enjoyed a visit from W5 Outreach team. The children had to determine if some experiments were magic or science based. Concepts such as gravity and inertia were demonstrated through different experiments. It was a fantastic morning, We hope each of the children enjoyed it!
