Global Experiment

Today – 10th November – is global experiment day.  Over 300 schools around the world are completing the same experiment in an attempt at a new world record.  You can find out about the experiment here:

We tested three types of nappies for absorbency – a swimming nappy, a Lidl nappy and a Pampers nappy.  Mrs Killeen is going to upload the Rathpeacon results to the global experiment website so that children around the world can compare their results.

Here are some photos of children in Rathpeacon completing the hydrogel experiment:

The results from schools across the world are being compared.  Here is a graph which shows the results in Ireland in comparison to results in the UK and the overall results.
