Science in Maple

As part of our topic on space, Maple class designed their own experiments to answer the question; Which material would make the best insulator for gloves for a space suit?

They then carried out these investigations measuring accurately using thermometers and timers – a great deal of patience was required for those who chose to see how long the ice cubes took to melt with the different materials!

They repeated their experiments several times and worked out the average result for each insulating material and then plotted graphs of their results,

Finally they produced posters to show their results and draw conclusions from their results about which material would make the best insulator.
