Christmas design technology project 14.11.19
The children have started their design technology project for Christmas. They have been measuring mobile phones and using the dimensions to design their gifts for Christmas. More to follow on this project!
As part of our work on forces, the children have been thinking about how and why a parachute works. They considered the enquiry question 'which is the best material to make a parachute'. They have been looking at air resistance versus gravity and the factors that are important to consider when making their own parachutes. They used paper, J-clothes and tissue paper and conducted their own parachute experiments and were able to explain their findings using scientific language.
Please ask them to explain their findings from these experiments and which proved to be the best material and why?
