We had a lot of fun this week experimenting with straws!
- discovered how vocal chords work
- found out that the longer the straw is, the harder it is to suck up liquid
- used a thaumatrope to see that sometimes the signal from the eyes to the brain gets confused
- constructed a wind-powered car
- built hoop gliders
