Year 4 Visit catalyst-September 2023, by Mrs Cavill

Date: 28th Sep 2023 @ 4:43pm

On Tuesday 26th September, Year 4 visited catalyst Science and Discovery centre.

Today, we completed two workshops and had some time to explore the interactive gallery.

One workshop was called Tasty Toothpaste. We looked at the sugar content of some of the everyday things we all eat and drink. We were very surprised at how much sugar was actually in some of our drinks. We made our own toothpaste and tested it, against shop bought toothpaste. They both did a very good job

The other workshop explored proving that gas exists and that is all around us, as it is harder to observe and see it in comparison to solids and liquids.
