ARTICLE FROM CLYDE VALLEY HIGH E-MAGAZINE

A brand new Science Club is up and running at CVHS and the first meeting proved to be a hit with the pupils. Ms Pathmanathan joined with pupils to carry out a ‘Methane Bubbles’ experiment. They also carried out a demonstration where the Technicians showed the pupils ‘Elephant’s Toothpaste.’ The finale proved to be explosive when pupils were shown what happens when a hydrogen balloon is set alight! Following meetings of the Science Club proved to be just as explosive, with pupils carrying out a ‘Coke and Menthos Mints’ experiment resulting in some dramatic effects!
