STEM Model Rockets

What an amazing day we’ve had today in Y5NS today, planning and building our very own model rockets!

First, Mr Williams set us our challenge – to design a capsule that would keep him safe on his space journey …

… and for our models, Mr Williams would be represented by an egg!

So we thought really carefully about what materials would best protect our egg astronaut (or ‘absorb the most impact’ in Alfie’s words!) and we started our designs …

Year 5 worked amazingly well together and we are so proud of them!

We can’t wait to launch our rockets tomorrow and find out if Mr Williams (the egg!) will make it to space and back in one piece!

Well done everyone!
