2nd class made some amazing structures using spaghetti and marshmallows. They figured out that triangular structures are the strongest of them all…

 

 4th class designed their very own boats using a wide range of materials. They tested them out and most floated without a hitch!

 

 

5th class used a wide variety of materials to create wind turbines and wind mills. They were learning all about energy, its sources and how it is generated into electricity.

 

 

 

 

First Class were busy designing towers and bridges…

 

We used the Discover Primary Science resource booklet ‘Gravity’ (linked below) to learn all about gravity and forces. We then created these amazing egg parachutes and tested them by dropping them out of our second story windows!

*Spoiler Alert*

There weren’t many survivors!!
