Wednesday Science Challenge

In Room 4 we have started a new unit about buoyancy (floating and sinking). As a warm up to thinking about that we had a buoyancy challenge. In small groups, room 4 had to make a boat out of 40 straws, 4 wooden bbq skewers, 2 small pieces of bubble wrap and some cellotape.

They had 25mins to design and make their boat and it was tested by placing marbles into it until it sunk or tilted over. The top score today was 31 marbles!

We are going to try again at the end of the term to see if our new learning helps us make better boats! Have a look at some of the pictures of the process below!
