Science Show Comes to Haydock High

On the evening of Monday 29th April the hall was filled with students, parents and carers of Year 7 and 8 students. 

We were extremely pleased to welcome Sue and Helen from Science 2 U, a company that specialises in science shows that enthuse and excite both students and adults alike. 

The show, called ‘I wasn’t expecting that’, was based around many topics that are taught in Key Stage 3 Science. We were amazed to see colour changing solutions, smart material experiments, fireballs and many other amazing activities. 

Ms Dannan got a great shock when a tin of custard exploded, letting out a loud shriek. The show certain lived up to its name, even with staff! 

Finally we witnessed a range of demonstrations using dry ice which were cool, literally (-790C)!

It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying the exciting science experiments, thankfully the school hall is still intact!!

A big thank you to Science 2 U for putting on a great show.
