National Science Week

National Science Week was celebrated last week 12-20 August.

Here at St James College our Science students witnessed some fun demonstrations using liquid nitrogen.

The Year 7 and 8 students made ice-cream and the Year 11 and 12 Physics students proved levitation is real by showing how to make a magnetic field around a ceramic disk that acts as a superconductor when it is cooled.

We levitated a Neodymium magnet above the ceramic disk.
