Rockets!

RocketsBy designing and launching air powered rockets children are taught how different forces work and in particular Newton’s third law. Using action and reaction children can see why rockets take off. Students design, make and launch their very own rocket which they will be able to take home with them.

Recommended: Years 2-5 (can be for year 1 also - please talk to the bookings team) 

Curriculum links: Forces and motion.
