SUPERHERO SCIENCE EXPERIMENT:
Can you make a Superhero figure float?
You will need:
One or more superhero figures (make sure they sink first!)
Different materials (e.g. bubble wrap, foam)
Tub of water or bath/kitchen sink!
Predict ; what will happen to your superhero if we pop it in the water?
Discuss with your child why some objects float and others sink?
How do children that can't swim float in the swimming pool?
Look at the different materials collected, how could we help our Superhero to float?
Test it out!
Discuss your results. Why does the Superhero now float? (air bubbles, pockets of air adding buoyancy to the figure)
