Junior scientists Harry and Olivia test the way air pressure affects the bounce of a basketball. Basketballs have a recommended PSI (pounds per square inch) of 8, but what happens if there is less air pressure in the ball? To find out for yourself, you will need basketball, a measuring tape, a sheet of paper to record results, tape, a pen and someone to help.
