Mars Craters - Science Experiment

Making Craters!

A Science Experiment


Dosbarth 2 wanted to know:

  • How did the Moon get its craters?
  • How can Mars have craters?
  • What about the craters on Earth?
  • Why do they look the way they do?


So, they decided to find out by making their own craters by dropping different sized and weighted objects into a tray of flour.

They confidently controlled the variables, taking accurate measurements, and analysed their data to answer some of their own questions.
