Year 5 Science Investigation

16th May 2019
Air Resistance Experiment

As part of their topic ‘Scream Machine’, Year 5 took part in an investigation to look at the effects of air resistance. In groups, they designed and made their own parachute for an egg. They needed to make it strong enough to hold the egg and considered surface area to ensure it landed safely. Year 5 considered the different variables they needed to keep the same in order to make it a fair test. Luckily, some of the eggs did survive the test!
