Science- which material is best for mending an astronaut’s glove?

This week we experimented to find out which material would be best to mend an astronaut’s glove- masking tape, duck/gaffer tape or plasters? After making a prediction, we designed an experiment, thinking carefully about making sure that it was fair. We tested the different materials by putting our mended gloves underwater for a few seconds, and seeing whether we got wet hands!

Next week we will be writing to an astronaut to explain which material is best material is best suited to mending his glove. Here are a few photographs of us planning and carrying out our investigations.
