Science Week Experiment

18th Nov 2022

This week was Science Week. We did a science experiment in our classroom called 'Walking on Air.'

The equipment we used was: balloons, a table and ourselves!!

First we had to blow up lots of balloons. We made sure to only blow them up a little bit so they still had room to stretch and wouldn't pop easily.

Then, we turned a table upside down and put it on top of all the balloons.

After that, people stood on the table! The balloons did not burst because the weight of the person was spread out across all of the balloons. The balloons were also able to stretch to hold the weight because they weren't fully inflated.
