Science day in 5th Class

We had great fun designing and constructing solar food warmers as part of science day. Unfortunately the sun disappeared behind clouds as soon as we had finished making the ovens so the marshmallows didn’t fully melt but we had fun eating them anyway.

We also took part in an agonising experiment where we had to hold an ice-pop without eating it for 5 whole minutes to test whether one wrapped in tinfoil melts more quickly or more slowly than one exposed to the air. Some of us guessed correctly that the conductive properties of metal would cause the ice-pop wrapped in tinfoil to melt sooner.
