What is science?

Science is the study of the world around us. Scientists learn about their topic by observing, describing, and experimenting. We too had a go at becoming scientists.

 

What did we observe?

We took inspiration from various scientists who used chemicals, mixed them all together to observe reactions. We listened to how jelly was created and watched how jelly was made a long time ago. We learnt that people used to put all sorts of things inside the mixture to make the jelly wobble. We tried making jelly ourselves, but unlike others, we tried making a vegetarian jelly.

We watched our teachers pour the jelly crystals into a large mixing bowl. Then we took it in turns to pour warm water and stir continuously. As we mixed up the mixture, we quickly realised that the jelly crystals began to dissolve and the mixture began to thicken. It smelled really nice! Very tropical indeed!

Now we have put it into the fridge so that when we check on it tomorrow, we should be able to see the wobble!
