Science Week – Pendulum Investigation – Maple Class

Maple Class started the week by investigating pendulums.  We had to create a pendulum which did 15 swings in 30s.  Initially a lot of time was spent focusing on how much the time varied by changing the weight of object attached, then we discovered that changing the length of the string made much more difference.  Knowing this in the afternoon we were able to adapt our pendulums to create much more succesful investigations.  It was great fun and we enjoyed our first day of science so much.
