Year 5 investigate advertising claims – are they true or false?

Nappy manufacturers make impressive claims about the absorbency of their products – but are those claims really true?

This was a question science teacher Mr Rahman asked Year 5 after the class watched a series of nappy adverts.

In the Prep School Discovery Lab the girls were challenged to explore to find an answer and were given equipment to choose from to help in their investigations. They set about designing their own experiments to find out how much water a nappy can really absorb before saturation and whether those advertising claims are true or false.
