Today during IPC the Grade 5 investigators did a blood splat experiment. They dropped blood from different height and observe the different characteristic pattern displayed. They will have to write up a hypothesis of a chosen pattern tomorrow.
Excuse the pun. These days 5W are pretty busy with our egg drop experiment. One group proposed whether they could use a drone… well, that’s a very technologically-advanced and creative idea, but unfortunately got turned down. Groups are still busy building prototypes, having test runs, and using the very limited resources that they earned using their homework credits (the basis of our class economy). The real test comes tomorrow when the students will drop the egg from a higher place which is about 2-storey high. Stay tuned.

Perhaps as you eat, you’ll now think more about where the food goes down the digestive system. 🙂
