These vibrations are called sound waves. We hear sounds through our ears, when the sound enters our ears they make our eardrum vibrate […]

Before we could build these, we needed to […]

Solar Oven

In 5th class our theme for the science fair was the environment. We explored how we could use the energy of the sun (solar energy) in different ways.
