Freemantle Scientists Attend the Big Bang Event

The BIG BANG event was held to inspire children about STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering & maths). The Winchester Science Centre and Plantarium have lots of interesting activities and shows over half term. Check out their website :

ON Thursday 19th May 2016, a group of 10 pupils from years five and six went to the Winchester Science Centre to take part in the BIG BANG event.

 

We first met a robot that could solve a Lego Rubix Cube. We had to completely jumble up the Rubix cube and then put it into the robot’s compartment. The robot had some sensors to scan the cube and it could then work out the steps needed to solve it. It only took 54:39 seconds and 11 moves to solve it completely!

 

Next, we went to the planetarium to watch a show. We travelled through space on an adventure though the galaxy. We looked at the constellations then visited Mars and Jupiter. We also  learned that every star has a planet (or more) in orbit around it.

 

As we came out of the planetarium, we walked to another stand all about signal waves and our challenge was to make a satellite with Pringle tubes. We also made LED torches and a cloud in a bottle.

 

One of the most exciting things was when we went into a university laboratory in a lorry! Three of us in year 5 looked down a £40,000 microscope and we could see a female mosquito’s mouth parts, it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!

 

This trip has inspired many of us become scientists when we grow up.
