Environmental centre at Kohila

Water absorbing experiment
Today we visited the Environmental Centre at Kohila to take part in the program "Water around and inside us. A two-hour program started with the presentation "Extraordinary water". The second part of our program was more practical and students could experiment with water.

Dropping over 100 needles

The saltier the water is, more likely potato will float

Experiments with salt and water
What did students think?

* We had fun. It was great to study new things. Unfortunately we couldn't do all experiments. 
* I liked that we could learn new things. I didn't like that the experiment with water and needles took so much time. 
* I found out new things.
* Experiments were great. Salty water was too salty. 
* I enjoyed the experiments.
* I liked the practical work, but I didn't like our bus ride. 
* I learned many useful things about water. 
*  the bus was swaying.
* I liked the experiments, but didn't enjoy tasting salty water. 

Form 9 students Evita, Liisbet, Gladis, Kristi, Johannes, Larsen, Oskar, Hans-Martty and Urmet; form 8 students Tauri and Kaarel, Arlii from form 7 and teachers Meeli and Evelyn took part.
