In Year 5 we have been learning about ‘Forces’. This week we did an experiment to test the effects of water resistance. The children got the chance to design, create and race their own boats!
Our boat came third place. We have learnt that the design was not effective and that our boat needed to streamlined, and the base needs to wide. Rayan and Deni
Our boat took 7 seconds to cross the water tray. We WON the race! Our boat was streamlined and the front was pointed. It also had a wooden base. This helped our boat to fight against the water resistance and travel at a good speed – Jake, Deborah, Nikolaos, Maria and Paul.
