Curiosity Club

A Day of Data

Today's theme at Curiosity Club was a hit.  Real scientists collect data so they can record their results.  This week the students used stopwatches, rulers, tape measures, graduated cylinders and balance scales to record their very own data.   We learned about multiple trials and using different measures.

Station 1:  How much liquid can a diaper hold?  Way to go Pampers!

Station 2:  How far and how long can a marble roll after coming down a ramp?
Station 3: Can a fan blow a tissue or a paper towel further and longer?

Most data was accurate and well organized; as with anything, there were a few bumps in the road; however, the multiple trials demonstrated when mistakes occurred.  

Now the children will be ready to plan their own measurement for their data results.  Can't wait till next week's process.
