Science Experiments presented by a group of Science Teachers

On Thursday, December 2nd, the TYiS students were the beneficiaries of a number of hands-on science experiments/demonstrations presented by a group of Science teachers from surrounding secondary schools. The group was led by Mr. Kazuhiro Miyamoto from Kaisei Jr./Sr. High School. Assisting him were Ms. Megumi Koyanagi from Kanagawa University Jr./Sr. High School, Ms. Eiko Nishizawa from Japan Women's University High School and Ms. Kyoko Kashiwa from Obirin Jr./Sr. High School.

Kindergarten through Grade 2 first made kaleidoscopes based on the concept of polarized light. The second activity involved the concept water surface tension. Grades 3 through 6 participated in an experiment which involved the mixing of baking soda and citric acid in water to create an endothermic reaction which led to the release of carbon-dioxide gas. It was great experience for all the students (and teachers)! Many thanks to the visiting teachers for a wonderful demonstration!
