Energy in Motion

At the Year 5 Science launch the students explored the concept of ‘Energy’ through conducting an experiment using milk carton carts travelling down ramps. They chose to change only one variable – height of the ramp, starting height of cart on the ramp or length of wheel base on the cart. They measured the distances traveled and recorded their results using a graph.

Experiment - How does changing the height of a ramp effect the distance a carton cart travels?
