6th class science projects

Mr. O’Neill’s 6th class recently produced their projects on topics ranging from matter, forces and electricity to technology and the frontiers of science. They also did some very interesting experiments which showed off their keen interest in and understanding of many different scientific principles. We had electrical circuits, chemical changes, electromagnets and even holograms. 20171121_12203620171121_13164920171122_12013820171122_12211920171123_12212820171124_10261020171124_11441620171124_12031620171124_12125720171124_13173220171124_13265420171208_130810IMG-20171130-WA0000
