Science Week 3 - How Strong is a strawberry lace? (16-3-16)
This afternoon, Year 5 began their work on forces by tackling the question 'how strong is a strawberry lace?'. After getting familiar with forcemeters, groups found various ways of testing the laces to breaking point. Our results were pooled and analysed and if anyone cares, the answer for today at least, is that an average strawberry lace has a breaking strain on 2.4N.
