Rocket Science

Year 7 have begun looking at Rocket Science in their Technology lessons this week as part of their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) project. Year 7 pupils will be learning about aerodynamics and rocket design in order to build the most successful rocket they can; they will then launch their water powered rockets into the air as a class competition.

This week, Year 7 have used the Technology department s wind tunnel to help them learn more about aerodynamics and how this affects the design of rockets in the real-world.

The wind tunnel is just one of the many pieces of specialist equipment and machinery the Technology department uses to enhance teaching and learning for all pupils.
