How can we investigate how well different materials reflect light?

With a datalogger of course!

This week Year Six used dataloggers to measure the amount of light which was reflected by different materials. We already knew that shiny, light materials make the best reflectors but now we had solid evidence to prove it.

It was a bit tricky setting up the equipment at first but now we know what to do, we would be able to use the dataloggers to help us measure again.

Oh...and as predicted, mirrors do make the best reflectors!
