Stickybugs join Year 7 Science

Today’s fascinating fact – Rodney the sticky bug moves at a speed of about 1cm/second. I bet you always wanted to know that?

In Y7’s science lesson today, we timed how long it took Rodney the sticky bug to make his way down the window. With a few swift calculations connecting the distance he travelled and the time it took we worked out his speed at around 1 cm /sec.

(We also learned about anomalous results, as one Rodney got stuck and another fell off in a few seconds!

(And by the way, we had lots of sticky bugs and they were all called Rodney.)
