Brainstorming for the Science Fair

It’s Science Fair Time!

Students of 2nd of ESO are hard at work again on the 2nd Annual Science Fair at La Senda. Last week they had to brainstorm experiment ideas making sure that their projects would have lots of controls and only one variable. Most did a great job coming up with ideas! These are a few of them:

  1. With which hairbrush do you get more hair from a cat?
  2. Which knife cuts faster different things?
  3. Which fruit rots first an apple or a banana?
  4. Which melts faster, ice or ice cream?
  5. Which burns faster, wool or cotton?
  6. Which ship travels better?
  7. Which dissolves faster in water, effervescent or a tablet?
  8. Which goes faster, a ball or a marble?
  9. How does a balloon inflate?
  10. Which seed grows faster?
  11. Which weights are easier to carry, 1 weight of 1 kg or 2 of .5 kg?
