4DT - Science Week
This week Year 4 have been investigating renewable energies and ways to harness wind power. We took part in a windpower challenge to create a working wind turbine using card, string and a pencil! We tested and evaluated our designs to see what we could improve. We then investigated how the size and shape of sails affect the distance a vehicle can travel. We made our own buggies and various sails and tested them on a race track, with the wind provided by a hair dryer! We recorded measurements for each sail and worked out averages, then produced graphs to display our data. We produced posters describing our method for Science fair and some members of the class then took part in the Science fair, explaining our findings to other classes and parents.
