Marshmallow Shooters

Skylab Hub Science groups have been learning about "Forces"

We made Marshmallow shooters - when we pull the balloon and release, the marshmallow is pushed out.

We learnt that force creates motion (movement) which can be measured by distance.  We planned a fair test to shoot 3 different items and compare the distance travelled.  It was great fun!!

First we raided the office and shot lots of marshmallows at Mrs Mutlow, Mrs Lumley and Ms Long.

We went off to find some teachers to shoot with our marshmallows - we got Mr Phillips, Ms Watt, Mrs Joseph and Dan too!!

Enjoyed by big and small people alike.  Wall targets aren't as much fun as moving, jumping and laughing adults!!
