4C Science 10th November 2017

Friday 10th November | Comments are off for this post

Today in science, we were testing to see if different kinds of materials were conductors of electricity. We tested the following materials:

  • metal (including scissors, spoon, knife, pencil sharpener, door handle, toast rack)
  • plastic
  • plant leaves
  • glass
  • wax
  • clay
  • foil

We found out that most metals conduct electricity and those that don’t conduct electricity are called insulators. Please see some photos below:
