Already this term we have carried out lots of science experiments around our materials topic. We have explored properties of materials testing their hardness, permeability,transparency and flexibility before moving onto testing conductors and insulators of heat.
We were commissioned by Brilliant Bags Company (Mrs Mason) to design a new lunch bag which of course needed to be lined with a material that wouldn’t make our sandwiches sweaty! We tested each material by wrapping it around a cup with ice and recording the temperature after time intervals. We all agreed that our lunch would be safer if the bag was lined with foil.
