​Terrific Science Investigation

On Tuesday 7th February years 4, 5 and 6 took part in a national investigation.  They were investigating to find out whether warm or cold water froze first and their results have been sent to help further scientific learning at the University of Southampton.

They were investigating something known as the ‘Mpemba Effect’ where a boy from Tanzania found that warm ice cream froze quicker than cold ice cream.  Throughout the UK, various schools are carrying out controlled comparative tests to test this phenomenon and we can now compare our results on the following link:
