Blast Off – Rockets!

Ever wanted to go to space? Fancy yourself as a bit of an aeronautical engineer? Our Starry Skies science teacher will help you build and launch a water rocket that might just help you get there…

Can you get it higher than the trees? What effects how high it goes? How can you make it aerodynamic? Can you get it back down to earth in one piece?

If you’re aged 5-8, come and build your rocket from recycled bottles (feel free to bring some along with you), with a nose cone and fins to ensure stability and speed. You’ll need to add water and use muscle power to work the air pump and launch your rocket.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… BLAST OFF!
