In room 12 we have been conducting lots of different experiments.

Have a look at some of our photos… What do you notice?…What do you think is happening?… Then think, “I wonder if…?”

In this experiment we were testing to see how strong the air pressure around us is.

We used a glass with some water in it and placed a playing card on top. We carefully turned the glass of water upside down and let go of the playing card. The water remained in the glass! Wow!!! Can you work out why?
