3...2...1...LAUNCH!

Pupils learn to build their own stomp rocket and launch it. Then they have experimental building time where they can modify and test their rockets to make them fly as far as possible. Younger pupils do this by exploration and older pupils will be introduced to the ideas of lift, drag and stabilisation.

We talk about replicates and fair tests while having great fun. It all builds to a Grand Final where we consider the common features of the best designs and reveal the Grand Prize Winner.

A small-group version of this is available for SEND Schools.
