It is rocket science!

22 Sep 2015

Report:

Science enrichment club members experimented with our new rocket launcher. Testing the pressurised bottle launch mechanism and investigating how the volume of water in the bottle affected the performance of the launch.

In future club boffins will be able to use a different launch attachment to fire rockets that they have designed, printed and manufactured from glued rolled paper tubes, nose cones and fins.

Other projects this term have included making robot cards with conductive paint and flashing LED lights and using scratch and sniff paints(!) to enhance various computer printed creations.

Current science and nature documentaries will also be watched.

Science enrichment club meets on Thursday evenings and membership is flexible to accommodate play rehearsal commitments.
