Wednesday 26th January 2022 – Science Investigation

This afternoon, Year 2 investigated whether different materials were either waterproof or permeable to decide which material would be best to use for making a diving suit. We used pipettes to drop up to five droplets of water onto 6 different materials and then watched to see whether the water was absorbed or not. We were all surprised to find that tracing paper appeared to be waterproof at first but after waiting for five minutes, the water began to make the paper bubble and crease.
