The focus at the moment in science for Doves is forces and on Thursday that entailed conducting an experiment into water resistance.
The challenge was to test the impact three different shapes moulded out of blue tack made on the time to travel from the top to the bottom of a container full of water.
Pupils had to divide and weigh their blue tack shapes to ensure a fair test. They then carried out three tests on each shape in order to take an average time for each one.
Showcasing good teamwork and working against the clock, Doves concluded the experiment by crunching the numbers and setting out their conclusions clearly in a table of results.
Check out how they got on…
