Thursday Inquiry group

A mixed group of students from across the senior school have chosen to do science and envrironment for their Thursday Inquiry. We are learning to design our own investigations. Our focus has been on learning about what happens when you mix vinegar and baking soda. We have been trying all sorts of mixtures and then using them to blow up plastic bags and today we had to make fizzy paint.
We have to think about what we know and what we want to know. We have to plan the steps to run the investigation. Then we have to watch what happens and try and decide why it happened. 
A puffed up bag...didn't burst tho!!
