Twelve pupils from classes J4, J5 & J6 were invited to join an extra-curricularscience club to complete an exciting but challenging science project.
Their project title was ‘What effects how quickly an object rolls down a ramp?’.
The pupils thoroughly enjoyed planning and investigating different surfaces and angles of their ramps. Challenges included ensuring both accurate and reliable results.
Mathematical skills were also tested as pupils were required to calculate mean values and the speed of rolling objects in metres per second.
The finale of the project involved the pupils designing a disability ramp that would be suitable for an infant and junior school.
All the pupils rose to this final challenge and produced well thought out and innovative designs. Many of the pupils even built amazing models of their fabulous designs.
Congratulations to Sonny and Oliver in J6 for their winning design which catered for many disability needs and not just wheelchair users.
