Rocket Launch

We have been so lucky over the last few weeks to have two wonderful students from Monash University who come to our school and teach us all about Space and Rockets.
With Sarah and Dave , we have talked about gravity and force and how these things are important for us – especially if we were thinking about going into space .
We made balloon rockets , then in groups made a water rocket that we would launch into space – or as far as it would go . We had to think about lots of things like shape size and how much water to put in . Its tough being an engineer !
We launched our rockets three times, each time measuring the time it spent in the air and with a trundle wheel, the distance it travelled from the launch pad . Results were interesting .

Watch us hard at work.

Our Trip to Scienceworks

We left early for our adventure – it’s a long way from Blackburn! We travelled down lots of roads, through a tunnel and over a L O N G bridge to get there . Once we arrived we couldn’t wait to get into the Planetarium . It was great !
The day went past so quickly – so much to see , so much to do .
Look at the photos and see how busy we were.
