Stomp Rockets

This term Class AS have been working on creating rockets in DT with Mrs Horrocks. Firstly they made designs and tested paper rockets. Then they moved onto the design process for the fully fledged stomp rockets which are powered by air forced out of a bottle and up a tube. The children formed into teams which competed against each other to see which rocket could travel the furthest distance. Design and angle of launch became particularly important. The winning team comprised Oliver, Alex C, Alex M, Josh NB, Cameron & James. Photos and a brief bit of film can be seen below.

    Well done to the winning team, looks like you had a lot of fun. We certainly didn’t have so much fun when I went to school.
