How far can a squirrel jump?
The hypothesis that squirrels would be able to jump a distance of at least 1 meter, is proven to be true.
Squirrels are normally active during the day and we can normally notice them running about and jumping between tree branches in parks. Squirrels are in fact able to jump the distance of about 20 to 30 times their body lengths!
What would happen if the science fair project was repeated to compare male squirrels and female squirrels?
The science fair project can be further repeated by increasing the height of the PVC pipe and reducing the height of the 2nd table.

Ensure that you wear safety gloves when handling the squirrels, to avoid being injured. Adult supervision required.
