The Chemistry and Physics of
Entertainment and Amusements

 
How do cream and strawberries become ice cream? What makes a roller coaster ride so thrilling? Is the combination of sweets and screams a good thing? Visitors to the IB G4 Science Project Conference learned the answers to these and many other questions about the chemistry and physics of entertainment and amusements.
 
Kelvin’s Library was the site of the Conference, held on the morning of February 19, 2014. The Conference was the culmination of several weeks of research and investigation by Grade 11 and Grade 12 IB Chemistry and Physics students, guided by Ms. Donna Labun, Ms. Michelle Davidson, and Mrs. Alice Osborne. At the exhibit sessions, teams of students answered questions about their projects, while others visited displays, posing questions about the science behind the investigations, evaluating exhibits, and providing summaries of each other’s work.
 
In addition, several science classes visited and evaluated the exhibits. Students talked to students, explaining processes, and answering questions. It was an authentic learning experience for all who attended, for teachers as well as for students.
 
Thanks to all the hard-working students and teachers who made this event possible. We look forward to next year’s IB G4 Science Conference.
