Burrator Science


Bright from Teign school visited Burrator to carry out some exciting and explosive science experiments! It all linked with our topic of ‘Space’ and discussions about pressure and forces. We used syringes to cause a marshmallow to stretch by changing the pressure and learnt that this is what would happen to an astronaut’s body without a spacesuit! We also made canister rockets which exploded really high into the air because of an increase in pressure.
