Year six boys took part in a science day today. Some boys had the challenge of building a bridge out of wood and others used a variety of materials to design and make the most effective aeroplane.
We knew that we needed to make a stable bridge and used reinforcement for the corners. We had to be careful with the hot glue gun. We planned our ideas and discussed which plan would work. Then we worked together and took turns using saws and glue to create the bridge. We were really pleased with the results.
We chose our own variables, some of us changed material, different paper, card and plastic bubble wrap. Some looked at whether size would make a difference. We also had to decide whether to measure time in the air or distance flown. We experimented with tape and decided that the heavier planes didn't work so well. We planned our designs and also our results table so that we could ensure a fair test. There were some surprise results.
