Science – Investigating Superhero Materials

Posted: 1 July 2021


In science we have been investigating Super-Hero materials so we can create a new cape for Supertato.   First, we wanted to discover which material would keep our potatoes dry.

We then investigated which material would keep him warm by wrapping hot jacket potatoes in foil, bubblewrap, fur, nylon and tissue. After an hour we used a thermometer to test the temperature. The children correctly guessed that the fur would keep him warmest.
