This Wednesday afternoon, the Physics Club were out in the rain, testing out their rocket and parachute designs. Despite the weather, they were using pressure to launch their rockets, with Rex’s taking a clear lead and going further than the others. Rex put his success down to his rocket’s pointed end.
Despite some successful launches, the pupils decided their rockets required some revisions. The parachutes attached (to return their rockets to earth safely) were slowing down the launch. The club will devise ways to keep the parachute inside the missile until it has been launched to see if this will help.
With thanks to Mr Laity for this fascinating and fun club.
