Setting up our new school vegetable garden.

We have been very busy since February organising and setting up our school garden. We ordered brand new recycled raised beds made out of recycled plastic – courtesy of the parents council.  A layer of the grass was first removed thanks to our caretakers Michael and Jacko.

Discovery Science: Parachutes ii

Discovery Science: Parachutes ii

Today as part of our Discovery Science work, we were experimenting with parachutes. We were comparing the different affects that varying the shape only of our canopies would make.
We decided to test circular, rectangular, triangular and square canopies keeping the surface area and other variables the same each time.

6th Class Science- Air Resistance

6th Class Science- Air Resistance

We investigated the effects of air resistance on the speed at which something falls. This began with Galileo’s experiment all the way to modern day experiments such as Brian Cox’s bowling ball and feathers investigation in NASA’s air vacuum. We then designed and created our own parachutes and decided which designs worked best for maximising … Continue reading 6th Class Science- Air Resistance
