Last Wednesday, one of our Year 10 Science classes was joined by Axel from Year 4. Axel, a pocket rocket in his giant high school lab apron, joined in to help teach Year 10 about rates of reaction and what happens when you heat things up. Working with Tom they timed the reaction of sodium thiosulfate and hydrochloric acid at different temperatures. Axel joined in the wrap-up and helped discuss the conclusions.
Bringing the junior school into the senior school was a brilliant experience and as Tom said, “he’s much better at drawing graphs than us.” As a successful experiment, we look forward to welcoming more junior school students visit to experience science and add their talents to our team. Well done Axel!
