The KPMG workers had been nice enough to offer our school a trip to the KPMG building. We spent a whole day with them and got a tour of the building and each of the levels of the block. As we learnt about matter and the three states of matter, we did different science experiments, such as growing crystals and making slime to show chemical changes and physical changes.
We learnt how there are three states of matter, solid, liquid and gas. Which have different properties, thus can be explained by looking at the arrangement of their particles. This is the theoretical temperature at which particles have the least amount of energy and the slowest movement.
They had even worked hard to put together morning tea and lunch for us and we appreciated that very much. We loved our time there and hope to go back there soon and learn a bunch of new things with the amazing KPMG crew. The KPMG members got to volunteer to spend the day with us and so many of them did.
