Children at PS 110 in Greenpoint are giggling, screaming, and gasping their way through Green Science Week.

The kids have spent the week getting a taste of real world physics as they learn about a wealth of scientific principles, including photosynthesis, electricity, and chemicals. And they are having fun doing it.

“The best part was the fire,” said seven-year-old second grader Alana Vass. “He took bubbles and chemical and made it into fire.”

So far, the school has brought in guest chemists and botanists to teach kids how the world works. They showed the children how the scientific principles related to their own lives, like the botantist who showed the kids how all the vegetables on their pizzas are grown.

“It is wonderful to show the kids how to eat healthy, they they are eating, and how it is growing,” said teacher assistant Natalia Lorenc.

Green Science Week will continue through the end of the week, and is sponsored by Exxon-Mobil and Broadway Stages.
