2D visit the fire workshop at the Science Pool This was an action-packed learning experience for 2D pupils in November! They had the chance to rub different materials together to create sparks and examine which were most effective; they practiced putting out flames by carefully but quickly placing the lid on a saucepan to cut off the oxygen supply, and finally they were able to add different substances to fire to observe their effect on the colour of the flames.

A bonus highlight for 2D was that they got to see an axolotl in another room at the Science Pool; a fascinating amphibian whose natural habitat is lakes near Mexico City, and which they discovered has several differences from other kinds of amphibians they had learnt about.
