Dry Ice Demonstration | 1st Form

10 May 2021


Lessons at Caldicott largely follow the kinaesthetic approach; fundamentally, boys learn best through hands-on, practical lessons. That thesis was certainly proved correct in the science lab this week, when our 1st Formers got the opportunity to take part in a practical demonstration into the properties of dry ice. We would like to thank NS’s mum for brining in this fascinating substance, and allowing his class to enjoy the wonders of it; the boys had a great time and also learnt a lot of basics about temperature and reactions. Inspiring boys in this way is what we’re about at Caldicott, and there’s nothing better than seeing a group of boys falling in love with a subject!
