Friday 17th November 2017 - A Testing Time.
After completing our rockets and proudly displaying them in our new gallery, we turned our thoughts towards the safety of the astronauts that travel to the moon. We thought about what properties a space suit would need to have in order to protect an astronaut and then thinking about temperature control, we conducted our own scientific test to find out about materials that would make good insulators. We used cotton wool, tin foil, pipe insulator and bubble wrap and our class prediction was that the bubble wrap would be most effective. It just goes to show what a clever lot we are - we were correct!
