I wanted to get my children thinking about the process of investigation today, so we talked about how we could test whether some structures were stronger than others using DUPLO. They decided to build three different shaped towers and test them by rolling a ball at them.
Can we make a bridge out of ONE A4 sheet of paper? Science at Home - looking at the structures and the impact that has on "strength of materials". The Boy thought it was like magic. (And we added some sneaky maths too).
