As part of our magnets and forces topic, we completed a friction investigation. We began by learning what friction is and decided to test the forces power. We decided to test the different amount of friction that is created by road surfaces.
”It was amazing” – Josie
”We learnt that the car did not move very well because the friction was stronger than the pushing force” – Jack
”The car moved easily on wood because it was smooth” – Freddie-Ray
