We had a surprise science show today! It was amazing.
Caroline from the Royal Institute in London told us all about energy and did some experiments.
We found out about different types of energy :
gravitational- by dropping an egg
elastic – we blew up balloons till they popped
nuclear- we found out a banana is radioactive
thermal – we saw a big ball of flames
electrostatic – we used a Van de Graff generator for a electric shock
kinetic- she used a disc cutter which gave off sparks and heat when it moved really fast
magnetic – we had a tug of war with 2 magnets
chemical – we made bubbles blow up into flames
