Christmas with a BANG!
Mosslands Year 7 STEM scholars didn’t have to wait for New Year eve to see fire works
Mosslands Year 7 STEM scholars didn’t have to wait for New Year’s eve to see fire works, attending a lecture at Chester University gave them the opportunity to see how a pyrotechnician sets up a fire work display. Never in the wildest dreams did they imagine that “quantum mechanics” is the foundation for the observable colours in fire works! Fire works are really a gas (pyrotechnician joke there), the noisy, colourful and smelly display was stunning and one that you certainly couldn’t try at home . Some of our students later pronounced it as epic, fantastic, amazing and that even the talking was interesting! However one student did claim he didn’t normally like Science but today was really good and that STEM was his favourite lesson!
