Year 5 designing their own experiments in Science

Year 5 were given the challenge to design their own experiments about rust. They aim to answer a variety of questions including:

  • Do different liquids impact how quickly a screw rusts?
  • How long does it take for a screw to rust?
  • Does the amount of salt impact the time it takes for a screw to rust?

The class learnt about rust being a chemical reaction involving oxidation and will be recording their results over the next few weeks.
