National Science Week Day 3 at the KZN Museum was all about making science fun. Learners spent the morning with Fun Science Secret Lab - Pty Ltd and had such a blast with all the super cool fun science experiments. Thanks to Katya for making science so much of fun for the learners. The learners were shown how to make a volcano and geyser using the simplest of ingredients. Have you ever heard of a balloon kekab? Well, it can be done, you just can't eat it! It was truly an interactive session where the learners got to do the experiments and just have fun.
