Journeys!   New for British Science Week 2019 – The Official Theme!

(Physics Fun!)

The First Law of Thermodynamics states, “Energy cannot be created or destroyed”. Through a series of fun demonstrations and experiments we investigate the energy journey and see how energy can be stored, transferred, and what happens when energy is released, by taking a look at surprising springs!

We reinforce this learning as each child makes and decorates their very own take-home Super-Cool-Spring-Space-Rover – an elastic potential-energy wooden car, powered by a wind-up spring!

We’ve also created a super-cool whole-school science assembly show – the  Epic Energy Journeys Show!  – Here
