A Flipping Challenge:
Flipping Pancakes is an important part of the pancake cooking process. Today we are challenging you to investigate the following question:
‘What material is best for flipping?’
Here is what you need to do:
-Ask to borrow a frying pan from your kitchen.
-Pick a material (cardboard for example).
-Cut out a pancake sized circle from your material.
-Test how easy it is to flip. How will you measure this? Perhaps you might like to see how many successful flips you can do with it in 30 seconds.
-Record your results.
-Repeat your investigation with a range of different materials.
When you have finished your investigation, email us and tell us what you found out.
