It’s in the bag!

CHILDREN had a super scientific time as they tested the strength of carrier bags.

Youngsters in Year 3 at Bourne Abbey Primary Academy made predictions about which carrier bags they thought would bear the most weight and used tins of baked beans to test their theories. They were amazed to be able to fit 57 tins into one bag!

The experiment was part of a topic on materials and has included a visit to Isaac Newton’s home in Grantham to inspire them to think like scientists.
