Guest Science Speaker

A wonderful Bioprocess Scientist called Helen, who works at Pfizer, came to visit us recently. She showed us how important it is to wash our hands thoroughly to remove all germs, and let us try on some of the clothes scientists need to wear to help keep germs out of the labs they work in.

Science experiment

She and some lucky science helpers in the class also conducted a fantastic experiment – we made a chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar to give off carbon dioxide which in turn blew up a balloon! We thought it was amazing and by the end of the visit we all wanted to be scientists when we grow up!
