6th Class were curious to find out what fruit or vegetable was the most durable when dropped from a height. We dropped various fruit and vegetables from the second floor window above Simons office.

We had great fun doing the experiment and creating the video together. Thanks to Gillian's Junior Infant Class for helping us record our data.
