Week 1 (Stephen Hawking)

Today you are going to learn about a famous, living, scientist called Stephen Hawking. He has even had a film made about him recently.

You are going to learn about his life, his theory of black holes and conduct some short experiments to learn about how black holes work.

You will need:

a balloon

some foil

a pin or something sharp to burst the balloon through the foil

a marble (or small ball)  and a larger ball (you could use a grape and an orange/apple)

a towel or table cloth


Report your findings and get someone to test you and get you to explain what you have learned.


Happy learning!
