Seventh and eighth grade students recently performed a Science Show for 75 Dickenson Elementary School fifth graders. Science show performers conducted many experiments that caused various items to foam over, change colors, spark, bubble, flame and pop. The show began with the "burning baby powder" experiment which caused a ball of fire to emerge when baby powder was blown through a flame. Students also made "elephant toothpaste" using a combination of chemicals that rapidly combined together and were sent soaring out of a cylinder. Spectators witnessed a car traveling across the floor in the "ethanol car experiment." Experiments with bright flames and loud explosions were the biggest hits!  The theme of the show, "It's Not Magic, It's Science," was a great opportunity for students to learn about science in an exciting environment. Berkeley students are also scheduled to perform science shows at Lowry Elementary, Mary Bryant Elementary and Dover Elementary this school year.  Bay News 9 was on campus to cover the event, and we are excited to share their coverage with you!  Simply click here, and the video will begin after a short commercial.
