In Mars, we  are very excited about making our superhero capes. We have been learning all about materials and have decided to make our capes using bags which is made out of plastic. We decided this because we found out that it is the most flexible material and tested this out by having a go at flying away with the different materials! We also found out that superheroes need a waterproof cape. To test which material is waterproof, we put the materials in the water to check. We made sure it was a fair test by using the same amount of water each time and kept the material in the water for the same amount of time.
