NC objectives covered:
A one off science day but also Earth and space / Forces associated objectives
Perfect for a whole Juniors focus on forces or simply as a one off challenge day our rocket challenge workshop is an extremely fun way for all your Key Stage Two pupils to work towards a single goal of being the ultimate KS2 rocket champion!
Taught a clas at a time, each pupil will learn how to make their own air powered rocket with one of two challenges, depending on our British weather!
CHALLENGE 1 (outdoor version, good weather - we manage to do this about 80% of the time barring downpours or too-strong winds): Who can design a rocket to stay in the air the longest in timed flights? (Best time wins it for their class).
CHALLENGE 2: (indoor version, bad weather in school hall): Who can get the most points on our 3m target? (Whole class score added up).
