Conducting Conductivity Investigations!

Upper keystage 2 have worked very well in their science teams to build electrical circuits to test 10 different materials for electrical conductivity.

We discovered that all the metals and carbon conducted electricity, wood, rubber, ceramic, glass and stone couldn’t.

Testing thermal conductivity of bubble wrap and tin foil took a lot more patience as temperature was measured every 15 minutes.
