British Science Week 2017

British Science Week is here and Year 4 have launched themselves into their first experiment.

We have been designing and testing parachutes.

It is a parachute’s job to cause as much air resistance as possible by trapping as much air as it can.

What do you think happens to the speed of a falling object the greater the air resistance it has?

Year 4 tested their parachutes outside and wrote up their findings. Great fun was had by everyone!
