Science week!

During the next fortnight it will be National Science Week in Australia, so we thought it might be apt to undertake some science experiments at Co-op on Tuesday (7th August). Perhaps some old favourites, or something you've not tried yet? Some of them we have tried several times over, but we keep going back to do them again because they are so much fun!

If you are coming along and would like to play with science with us, please feel free to bring along an experiment to share with the group, or perhaps some of the following ingredients:

  • Cornflour
  • Yeast
  • Balloons
  • Small plastic bottles
  • Bowls (for mixing things)
  • Food colouring
  • Straws
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Glycerin
  • Liquid starch
  • Clear glue
  • Zip-lock bags
  • Sticky tape
  • Vinegar
  • Bi-carb soda
  • String

If you are able to bring anything in particular, please leave a comment below, or on the facebook group (to save me from going and buying bulk quantities at the supermarket!!)

We're looking forward to lots of (messy) fun! Perhaps bring a smock or change of clothes and a towel along with you? Hope to see you on Tuesday. xx

There is a red folder with a form that we need to sign for insurance purposes at co-op. Please list your family as attending and remember to initial the form each time you attend, so we are covered for cottage hire. Also, there is a little red money box usually on top of the microwave in the kitchen. Please put your gold coin contribution here to cover your attendance. If not enough people contribute, it comes out of our family's pocket. We love spending time with everyone at co-op, but it becomes an expensive exercise if attendees don't contribute. 

Marine Discovery Centre - please confirm your interest in attending the Marine Discovery Centre on 28th August. Our attendance and cost will depend on numbers of people who commit to going. Please leave a comment below, or email or let me know on facebook. Thanks!
