Year 6 data logging in science

22 Sep 2015

Pupils in Year 6 used temperature sensors and data loggers to monitor how heating affected the temperature of a beaker of water over time.

Pupils were delighted to discover that the data logger could not only record the readings of the temperature sensor, but plot a graph of their results too.

Most were surprised to find that the temperature of the liquid water in the beaker did not keep increasing, but levelled out at the boiling point.
