Colour a flower



During our last classes the 4th graders decided to color white flowers. For our experiment, we needed a few white flowers, several packages of food dyes and some jars with water. We didn’t have to wait long for the final effect. White flower petals started changing color after just a few hours. We like  exploring the world through experiments.

Science Fair

During the Science Fair, which took place on 13th May, students of grades 6 and 7 of primary school demonstrated  a number of physical and chemical experiments for their younger schoolmates. Our youngest students learned about condensation, sublimation and friction. They found out how to build a battery with a few lemons. They are now able to explain why the solutions in the “rainbow experiment” do not mix.
The main purpose of organizing this type of event is to arouse curiosity and support independent learning about the world.
