3 November We have been doing a science experiments about the elasticity of a rubber band. Here is Fearghus's explanation: The rubber band got stretchier because cold water made the rubber molecules relax and expand. If it was hot the rubber molecules would jump around and get all coiled up like chains.By Fearghus
