Starting early with fire experiments

As part of their science education programme the children at Chapter One childcare on Drum Street in Gilmerton spent the morning learning about fire and watching some fire experiments. Dr Stephen Welch from the fire group demonstrated key phenomena governing fire behaviour, i.e. effects of air and water, via the Fire Tornado experiment and an investigation of water suppression of a small pool fire. At the end of the demonstrations all of the children were aware of the possibilities of fire doing unexpected and dangerous things, and they all know that children should NEVER play with fire!
