We love designing experiments to test our theories. Here you can see photos from our recent science lessons.
Absorbency - we tested the absorbency of a range of paper towels to find out which was the best value for money.
Friction - using newton meters we measured the force of the friction between trays and a variety of surfaces.
Levers - we examined what impact the position of the fulcrum had when it come to the amount of effort needed to move a load.
Air resistance - we loved making parachutes to examine, and then graph, the relationship between surface area and the time taken to fall to the ground.
Crater investigation - we looked at both how differently sized meteorites impact the size of resulting crater and how meterotires at differnt speeds can impact crater size. We had a lot of fun with a tray of flour during this investigation!
