All of Year 7 have been looking at the topic 'Birds' this term and as part of that we have been carrying out a range of experiments. These experiments have ranged from testing the amount of weight an egg can hold, testing to see if it is possible to suck an egg into a glass bottle by using a short flame to create an increase in air pressure and all testing to see if we could make an object fly.
We decided to test the latter with a bottle of Diet Coke and a few mentos. In theory, the mentos should create pressure inside the bottle forcing it to lift off the ground... but do not try this at home (unless you're with an adult)!
Unfortunately, this time the experiment didnt work although the children enjoyed watching Mr Guy and Mr Uprichard get soaked.
