Jam on the Brakes!
Year 5 & 6 were continuing their Science topic of Forces - this time they were focusing on friction! They were tasked with coming up with the best material to use for brakes for a new scooter company. The materials they had to choose from were wood, corrugated card, carpet and bubble wrap. They tested each of them out on a scooter and found out that the best material was the carpet. This is because the carpet was able to bring the wheel of the scooter to a complete stop the quickest.
