Students explore wonders of science

The wonders of science were explored by Esperance Senior High School students during national science week.

Curious students took part in experiments to find out what reactions happened when mixing different chemicals.

On Thursday science teacher Julie Hall carried out some exothermic and endothermic reactions to see which elements became hot and which ones became cold, much to the delight of the students.

Also during the week, science teachers carried out a series of demonstrations including a balloon car race, making soap, board games, vinegar and bicarbonate rockets and liquid nitrogen demonstrations.

National Science Week is an annual celebration of science in Australia that has been running for the past 15 years.

“It also aims to encourage an interest in science pursuits among the general public and to encourage younger people to become fascinated by the world we live in,” a spokesperson for the national event said.
