This month in our DYW committee group we were learning lots of science skills. We learned about wiring a circuit to
light a bulb and then we added a switch. We experimented with different materials to see which ones were insulators and which were conductors. This means which materials let electricity flow through them and which ones stop it.
After break we learned about forces and motion. We had a Rocket Challenge to see who could design and build a rocket that could cut through the air. The winning rocket was ‘Pencil’. It was like a pencil with a sharp top. It moved the furthest and quickest.
We had an excellent time working together.
