In the Rockets workshop, children design and launch air powered rockets! To participate you can either visit the UK’s largest visitor attraction dedicated to space and space exploration OR make a booking for a workshop in your school!
By designing and launching air powered rockets children are taught how different forces work and in particular Newton’s third law. Using action and reaction children can see why rockets take off. Students design, make and launch their very own rocket which they will be able to take home with them.
Recommended: Years 2-3 (can be for year 1 also – please talk to the bookings team)
Curriculum links: Forces and motion.
