One of the students was inspired by a video they saw on youtube where you could push a pin into a balloon where is was covered by sellotape.
Using this as a basis for the weeks experiments we looked at what pops a balloon and the changes you can do to stop it from popping. We tried the sellotape first and we were able to push three pins into the balloon!
We then made a mat of pins to find out what happened when we pushed a balloon on it.
One of the best things about doing these experiments is the fantastic variations the students come up with to test the first theory. Amira wondered what would happen if we made another bed of nails and squashed a balloon between the two. Check out the video below to see what happened...
