Year 7 pupils have been studying about how chemical reactions are used to make fireworks. As part of the course, they had to use the skills they have acquired about planning investigations to design a range of fuses that would burn for a specific length of time.

Afterwards one of the fuses was used to light a rocket that had been made by one of our technicians. All pupils were impressed by the speed of the rocket as they watched from a nearby window!
