This one really goes with a bang!
This is everyone’s favourite – it is a team activity, and takes place over several sessions during a residential visit. You’ll begin by learning the basics of rocket building and launching, then design and make your own craft. On the last day, as a grand finale, we launch everyone’s rocket and seeing which one goes furthest (and doesn’t fall apart). You can do this just for fun, or it can be a maths and science project, making it as difficult or simple as you like. Oh, I forgot to mention, every rocket has it’s own pilot – a raw egg. Will Captain Egg land all in one piece? You definitely won’t win if he’s all gooey – or even cracked.
Suitable for everyone.
Location: on-site, from one end of the field to the other!
