Science week 2020 in 5th and 6th class

On Tuesday we did a science experiment to show how far your sneeze could travel .

Our aim was to show how microbes travel in the air.

We all designed are own self portraits.

Step one: place your self portrait on the ground.

We had a water sugar mix that had water and luminous sugar inside to act as the sneeze.

Step two: we sprayed the water sugar mix on the self portraits.

We had a UV light that could show where the luminous mixture had landed.

Step three: get the UV light and shine it over all the self portraits and see how far the spray (Sneeze) had landed

Our final result was that the spray (Sneeze) went just over 2 metres (2.3m) so that if we keep up social distancing we will be safe from other peoples germs
