Our students love their weekly science lessons with Mrs Olsen. This year they have been learning about the Earth, properties and materials, and how to conduct experiments.
Today the grade four students tried out a fun resource called The Science Master.
This is a safe site run by a retired scientist and teacher in England. It is a place where you can submit your own science question and get a personalised answer.
The Science Master won’t answer your question directly, but give you clues to figure it out for yourself.
Our students brainstormed their ideas with a friend. The Science Master tells us that science is ‘applied curiosity’ so we had a think about what we were curious about. How do things work? Why are things the way they are?
We don’t know all the answers to the way the world works, but science can help.
Here are the questions we submitted on the The Science Master website.
We will be on the lookout for responses to our questions. Stay tuned!
Want to try The Science Master for yourself?
Here is some information that might help:
- Anyone between the ages of 7 and 13 can submit a question on The Science Master website.
- You don’t need an email address and don’t need to submit any personal information.
- Before you submit a question, you need to search the site to see if the question has already been answered.
- Always have a teacher or parent check your question before you submit it.
