- Making the perfect paper aeroplane
- The ice cube string experiment
- Building the tallest possible freestanding tower
For the perfect paper aeroplane, the pupils had to design, build and test different types of paper aeroplanes. When designing the paper aeroplane, the pupils had to make sure that it would stay in the air for as long as possible and would also travel as far as possible. They then had to fly their aeroplanes and measure how far they travelled.
The ice cube string experiment involved examining the chemical reaction that occurs between water and salt. The materials used were an ice cube, some salt and a piece of string and the aim of the experiment was to see how the salt reacts with the ice cube which then allows it to pick up a piece of string.
Only using materials available to them at home, the pupils had to try and build the tallest possible freestanding tower that they could. The only rule that they had to follow was that the tower could not be supported or propped up against anything. The pupils then had to measure the final result.
See some of their amazing results below. Excellent work as always from everyone!
