Young Begbie View scientists explore physical world

Laurie Henshaw’s Begbie View Elementary grade 5 class showed their knowledge of the scientific method at their science fair

Gallery: Laurie Henshaw’s grade 5 class at Begbie View Elementary held a science fair last week, demonstrating their knowledge of the scientific method using hands-on physical sciences demonstrations.

PHOTO: Inspired by the Farm to Table program, Hannah Vandenberg-Clark explored the effects of food preservatives in an experiment where she left a McDonald’s hamburger to rot alongside foods without preservatives. Although the experiment didn’t support her hypothesis (the  McDonald’s burger rotted more quickly –  it was in a container marked ‘do not open’) she nevertheless put together a helpful presentation on the downsides of preservatives.

PHOTO: Rebecca Brosch’s experiment explored the effects of exercise on your heart, charting heart rate across a number of different exercises. She also built a stethoscope she used to measure heart rate.

PHOTO: Noah Babak’s ‘cartastic’ experiment highlighted how the physical properties of the carnation can be exploited to add colouring. When dipped in a coloured solution, the stems draw the moisture up into the flowers, creating a coloured fringe that highlight the organism’s stoma cells. By splitting the stems, Babak manipulated the colours to created two-toned flowers divided down the middle.
