To learn more about Physics we set up 6 activities. It gave us time to investigate various concepts about Physics and discover by experimenting, making, testing and observing. We were like real scientists. We used different materials to learn about:
- incline planes
- static electricity
I discovered that static electricity can move cans and lift paper.
Making gears was fun because we could experiment with different size gears and make things. Adam created a fantastic car that moved.
I learnt that using water glass and light I could create a rainbow. The light reflected off mirrors also to make different effects. We used small torches to shine through a magnifying glass. The light was bigger and made good effects.
I discovered that rubbing a balloon on wool gave it static electricity. You could then use that energy to move an aluminium can.
Holding the light under a magnifying glass and shining it on the ceiling created a disco ball effect.
We used two pulleys to lift a kilogram weight, which was easier than just pulling it up with one pulley.
