What a lot of investigating we have been doing in science this week! Our experiments were linked to water and air resistance. We made different shapes out of play dough and dropped them in water to see which travelled faster. The sausage shape created less water resistance and was the fastest shape to sink to the bottom of the cylinder. We also made different sized parachutes and launched them off the fire escape to see whether the canopy size made a difference to the speed at which they travelled. The safest parachute was the one with the largest canopy because it created more air resistance and travelled slowly to the ground.
