SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS: Week 1 - Forces

 

As discussed last week, we'll be sticking up a few really, really simple experiments for you to try at home.  We will be making things as straightforward as possible in terms of equipment and resources, so you won't need Bunsen burners, particle accelerators or bottles of acid.  

 

What you WILL need is to be really careful, think about how we set up experiments (remember, we only change one thing to make sure we are conducting a fair test), measure really carefully so you get meaningful results, and then think about what your experiment tells you.

 

The first thing we will be looking at is FORCES - especially gravity, friction and resistance.  You might need to do a little bit of research about these if you aren't sure what they mean - there are some useful activities on Education City for this, as well as some really useful information on the BBC Bitesize website:

Make sure you email us your findings, as well as any photos or videos of you carrying out the experiments!  We'll be adding dojos for all contributions, and extra dojos for the best contributions!

Myles has made a video using stop-motion - you have to take a picture, move things very slightly, then take another picture and so on... This is how they made the Wallace and Grommit films!
