'Eggtastic' Experiment in Year 2

Year 2 celebrated Science Week by taking part in an eggtastic experiment! The children used their knowledge on materials to design and make a protective vessel for an egg.

They explored the different properties of the materials they were given to identify which would be most successful in protecting the egg if it were dropped from a height of 100 cm. They considered density, softness, strength, elasticity, immersion and weight. The children tested the different materials, improved their designs and retested. The children ensured they carried out fair tests and used their Scientific enquiry skills to observe and ask questions. Here are some photos from the test. Some were successful, some not so much!
