http://reellifescience.com/2013/11/12/announcing-the-reellife-science-2013-primary-school-winners/

Today they announced the winners from the reel life science competition.

We came 2nd prize for ‘ germ busters’. It was great fun making  germ busters. Everyone in the school helped us to make it by doing special jobs. We had to make the germs, learn about germs, compose a song and pick a tune to match it to! We now want to help everyone to remember to wash their hands!!!!

We  feel  so happy about  how well we have done!!!   We  felt  so  happy  that  we  came  second place. Well done the winners and all who took part!

We even made it onto the journal.ie news website!!!!! wow wee

UPDATE!!! Volcano made and erupted!!! We used baking powder, clay, food colouring and vinegar to create mini eruptions.

First we made the volcano, then we stuffed it with paper and added the baking powder and food colouring. next we added the vinegar and made it erupt. The reaction between the vinegar and baking powder even added the bubbles and sound effects you see in real volcanos.
