St Albert Feast Day Whole School Science Activity 2020

Helen Ansell

To celebrate his Feast Day 2020, we thought about St Albert’s love of knowledge and science. What better way to do this, than by focusing on the pioneering work of scientists during the pandemic.

The children reflected on the fact that within weeks of the first reported cases of Covid-19, scientists had identified this microscopic virus and were researching how it spreads and how it affects people. Scientists, all over the world, are now working hard to find a safe and effective vaccine. They are getting closer every day!

Thanks to the knowledge of how it spreads, we know how important it is to wash our hands. We used a special lotion to represent the germs that we can so easily have on our hands. Under ultra violet light, the lotion glows, showing us any areas of handwashing that we missed.
