Watermelon Experiment

Do you know how many elastics it takes to make a watermelon explode?!? The students in Room 7 do…451!!! With an exciting grand finale to Science Week, the students in Room 7 conducted  this experiment, stretching elastic bands one by one around the middle of a watermelon.  The process took a while but when the pressure was too much, there was a fantastic explosion of watermelon to the great delight of everyone watching.

Power Rangers – Reducing NMPS’s Energy Use

Reducing energy consumption is the simplest way to reduce our school’s environmental impact. The main areas of energy consumption in schools are:

  • Lighting
  • Heating and cooling 
  • Computers. 

Students in Room 1 have become North Morley’s first Power Rangers – implementing simple no-cost solutions to try and reduce electricity consumption.

Analysing the data using the ClimateClever app you can see we are on track to use over 100k of kilowatts again this year. Let’s see if we can get our usage below 100k North Morley by simply switching off lights and other appliances when not in use!!
