The Science of Bounce!πŸ€

On our recent trip to St. Tiernan’s secondary school, the children took part in a science experiment to determine the effect of heat on a rubber ball. Using predicting, measuring, recording and reporting skills, the children were able to conclude that heat will expand the rubber, thus increasing the height at which the ball will bounce. The children also had their first experience of using laboratory equipment, so it was a great opportunity to see what awaits them next year! A big thanks to Mr. Cathal Curry and the school for facilitating this trip.
