Welcome to our Science Fair Page
Bounce Bounce Bounce the Balls
Project Title: Bounce Bounce Bounce the balls
The Team: Bobby, Adam, Jake, Rachel, Meadhbh
Hypothesis: The rubber ball is the bounciest ball
Experiment: We put our metre stick standing upright. First we held the tennis ball at a height of 80cm and let it drop. We recorded to see what height it bounced back up to. We recorded the the result. We repeated this step with each of the balls and recorded the results.
Results: The rubber ball is the bounciest ball
Conclusion: We learned that the rubber ball is the bounciest ball of all.
Our experience at the Science Fair: We really enjoyed the science fair. It was really interesting seeing all the different projects .
Do plants need light to grow?
Project Title: Threads,Threads and more threads!!
The Team: James,Harry,Christian,Eimear & Tanya.
Hypothesis: Wet threads are as strong as dry threads
Experiment: We measured a piece of thread 60 cm long, we soaked the thread for an hour in a cup. We used 20 books, 10 on either side of the table to keep the ruler balanced on either side. We tied our thread around the plastic bag which was balancing from the metre stick. Lastly we dropped the batteries into the bag one by one and counted the batteries until the thread snapped. We repeated this step a number of times with dry thread and wet thread.
Results: Our average result for the dry thread was a total of 79 batteries and for the wet thread we got an average of 77 batteries.
Conclusion: Wet thread is as strong as dry thread. We were very surprised to learn while doing our project that thread is extremely strong which we did not realise before we took on this experiment.
Our experience at the Science Fair: Our experience at the science fair was fun, interesting and really cool and we would love to do it again.
Do different types of water affect the growth and health of plants?
Tinkle Tinkle Little Star
Project Title: Tinkle,tinkle little jar.
The Team: Aoife , Shauna, Kevin, Grace & Seán
Hypothesis: The more water you have in a glass jar the lower/deeper the sound you will get.
Experiment: First we got the 1 jar and put 40ml of water in it using the measuring spoon. We then got the second jar and put 100ml of water in it We got the third jar and put 200ml of water in it. We got the fourth jar and put 250ml of water in it. We then put the jars in a straight line with 1cm space between them and tapped it to hear the sound.
Results: When we tapped jar that had 250ml of water in it. It made the deepest sound of all.
Conclusion: The more water you have in a glass jar the lower/deeper the sound you will get.
Our experience at the Science Fair: We really enjoyed
our experience at the science fair and we were so happy to hear that we had won!
A Spoonful of Sugar
Project Title: A Spoonful of sugar.
The Team: By Billy, Mattea,Katie B,Timmy and Katie.
Hypothesis: Caster sugar dissolves quicker in water than icing, granulated and brown sugar.
Experiment: We got four plastic cups and filled them with 150ml of warm water. We put a teaspoon of icing sugar into each cup and stirred the mixture. We timed how long it took for the mixture to dissolve. We repeated this experiment with the other sugars.
Results: Caster sugar was the quickest to dissolve. (6.26 seconds).
Conclusion: We all learned that caster sugar was the quickest to dissolve.
Our experience at the Science Fair: We thought that it was fun and we would like to do it again.
