We literally started Science Week with a bang in Senior infants! In order to explore weight and force distribution we inflated balloons, but not fully. The balloons were then placed on the ground and a table was placed upside down on top of the balloons. While the table was held at the corners to secure it, children stood upon the table one at a time. Because the weight was evenly distributed it was possible for ten children to stand on the table before the balloons started popping!!
We had so much fun completing this experiment!!
