We had a lot of science projects left over from the 'Crazy Scientist' advent calendar (see Project 212: Christmas Crafts), so we had a science focused week to catch up on them all.
Along with the detailed commentary on the science behind each experiment in the accompanying booklet, we read up on each topic in our illustrated science dictionary.
As the 'Random Science' title suggests, there was no real theme to the science, but it included everything from creating a vortex and the conservation of energy...
...to looking at the pH scale, a facet lens, and static electricity.
It was a really good advent calendar, but just a bit too intensive to do one experiment a day in addition to other project work in the run-up to Christmas!
