We have been working through the ‘Driving Along’ topic for our science entry level qualification. The topic is about speed, reaction times and car safety.
We carried out an experiment so we could practise calculating our speed.
First we measured out 20 metres and then we worked in pairs.
One of us did the activity and the other timed them using a stopwatch.
We ran, hopped, skipped, walked and did heel to toe, as quickly as we could.
We then logged our times.
We calculated our speed once we got back into the classroom and put our data into a graph.
