As part of the BBC & Wellcome Trust "EXPLORIFY" series, Eggardon carried out experiments into the speed of light vs their reaction times!
With a video from Professor Brian Cox, we also learnt how it takes longer for the light from events that occur further away from us to travel to our eyes.
We also wondered whether if we could run fast enough, could we run, turn round and see the image of ourselves running towards us catching up!

The children will repeat this experiment to see what things might influence their reaction times at different points in the year.
