Science Fair - Water Project

Today we have taken part in a home education Science Fair. In preparation for this we decided to revisit the water project that we completed over a year ago.

The children made their own water wheel following these instructions.

Last week we spent a fun afternoon visiting Quarry Bank Mill where there is a working water wheel. Following this visit, Nathanael made this short video about Hydro Power.

At the Science Fair there were lots of other interesting exhibits to explore and learn from.


It was an enjoyable morning and the children were thrilled with the medal they were awarded for their hard work.  


  1. I love the idea of a science fair. Did each family have a stall? Just thinking of the practicalities of setting up something like this.

  2. You could either enter as a family or an individual, but most people entered as a family.

  3. That looks like a fun activity. My kids have missed doing a science fair maybe I should make them do one. It looks like you have a great group to join with.

  4. Kirsty, I've just updated my UK Christian home educators blog list and included yours. Hope that is OK.
