Mr. O’Neill’s 6th class recently produced their projects on topics ranging from matter, forces and electricity to technology and the frontiers of science. They also did some very interesting experiments which showed off their keen interest in and understanding of many different scientific principles. We had electrical circuits, chemical changes, electromagnets and even holograms.
As part of our scientific studies, we were given a certain quantity and type of materials and we constructed boats with the aim to make them float. We added items e.g coins to see if the boats could take the weight and stay afloat. We illustrated and wrote up our findings afterwards. We learnt a lot from this Floating and Sinking Experiment.
