DHC Overview

The goal of the Double Helix Club is to draw on the science knowledge students learn in G7&8 and be able to apply it to more open ended investigations and experiments. Students will take an active role in investigating these key questions
• Can you hold fire in your hands?
• Have you ever heard a jelly baby scream?
• Do you know what an elephant uses to brush its teeth?
• How does Kiwi fruit hold the secret of life?
• How much energy is there is a packet of pocky?
• What does the inside of a Kermit the frog look like?
• Do we have money to burn?
• Have you seen an elephant, Crocodile, Whale, Giraffe, Shark, Tiger or Snake dissection?
• Do you know the science behind roller-coasters?
• Do you know how to make a zinc Christmas tree?
• Can you make a chemistry powered rocket?
