British Science Week Experiments

As part of British Science Week, our Science Department have been running some fun experiments for our Year 7 and 8 students.

Year 7 students took part in balloon rocket races. They were tasked with trying to design and construct the most aerodynamic shape and thereby the fastest balloon racer.

Year 8 students carried out a cargo drop to deliver aid to remote villages. The students designed a package that could protect the cargo (dried pasta) from being dropped from a height of 2 meters.

Student have also been taking part in a competition to design a poster for British Science Week. The poster topic is journeys around the world, either in the past or the future.
