Science club is officially back on for 2020 and the children got off to a flying start by building balloon rockets! Before they started, they reflected on their Science Capital- whether they saw themselves as future scientists. Following this, they began to construct their rockets. They were given a balloon, masking tape and a straw to create a rocket that would fly through a piece of string attached to two separate ends of the room. They had a lot of fun while they tested each rocket to see how far it could go. The children then discussed why they thought the balloon moved forward. They knew it was something to do with the air. They then learnt about THRUST, the pushing force that forces the balloon to go forward when the air of the balloon is let out.
