3… 2… 1… Lift Off
In a dual exercise with St Ambrose Barlow, Year 5 were today designing and making rockets ready for a launch at St Ambrose. Putting all their design skills into practise and knowledge learned from the topic, the children had to consider the effects of air resistance, balanced and unbalanced forces, streamlining and overall aesthetics for their rockets.
The most important issue the children will have to face with their rockets is Gravity. Will the rockets be that good that the Gravitational Pull of the Earth doesn’t take over as they leave the atmosphere?
Launch date to be announced…
