Science

In science we really enjoy predicting what we think will happen, designing and creating the experiment and then discussing the results of our experiments.

This week we made a ‘Deep sea diver’ that could float and sink. We used a pen/marker lid, a paper clip, plasticine and a large bottle of water. When we first put the ‘Diver’ into the water it floated, this is because there was a large air bubble in the marker lid. We discovered that when we squeezed the bottle, water was pushed up into the marker lid, creating a smaller air bubble and that made the diver heavier and then it sank.
