Year 2 Sapphires have started a series of action packed science experiments by investigating the absorbance of 5 different materials. The children carefully measured 2ml of water using their pipets to squeeze onto each material which they had secured on top of a beaker to collect the droplets. Lots of teamwork was involved to carry out different aspects of the investigation in a fair and consistent way. The groups discovered that the blue hand towel was the most absorbent material – one of the groups even found it soaked up 20 water droplets
