Monday 28th November 2011 – Young Scientists in Year 3
This afternoon, children in Year 3 carried out a Scientific investigation into the push and pull forces exerted by elastic bands. Using a band stretched between two chair legs, they carefully measured how far the band was pulled back, and then measured how far the band pushed a wooden block. They found out that the larger the ‘pull’ force, the larger the ‘push’ force and the further the block travelled.
