Crest Award Science Club for Year 7
Week 1 - Tumbling Toast
Our challenge this week was to help solve the quandary of does toast always land butter side down?
We were investigating the notion of 'Murphy's Law'. In small groups of 2/3, we had to come up with a fair test that would allow us to test what happens when you drop toast. Some group tested buttered/not buttered, toasted/not toasted, crusts/no crusts. We also had to keep in mind how high we were going to drop the toast slices. In the end, it was found that there was little consistency between the results of butter/no butter and crusts/no crusts but height of the drop did play an important role. The greater height gave the toast time to turn in the air. However, it was concluded by Year 7 that indeed it was all down to chance as to what side the toast landed on.
