The Week of Science has become an important event at Palacio de Granda. Students and teachers work together to prepare talks, lessons and experiments not only to learn but also to show how much they are learning in the different subjects.
This year it has a special meaning as we have just opened three laboratories fully equipped and a project room where students can improve their learning. That is why we decided to open our doors and share this week with families.
At the Chemistry lab 4º ESO A students did different experiments. Why regular coca-cola is heavier than zero? How to make your own lava lamp at home…
In the Biology lab 3ºESOB and lower sixth form students showed the dissections they have been practising in class: heart, lungs, squid, mussel and trout.
The Physics lab was where students did some of the most remarkable experiments. Primary and Infant students were amazed to see how laser light led the water or how strong a magneto can be.
Outside 4º ESO B did things that made the audience applause , they ate ice-cream made by the students with juice and liquid nitrogen.
In Primary students planted strawberries in the playground, now they will see how they grow.
Infants took part visiting the new labs with their teachers, where secondary school mates explained to them everything they were doing.
Everyone visited the project room where there was a display of minerals, shells and fossils.
Secondary and Sixth Form students also cooperated as guides, helping families who visited the school. A day of convivence which all year groups enjoyed. Thanks to all who came to see us.
