Funtington came to Bourne, excited for the rockets. When we got there, the children learnt about thrust by blowing up balloons and observing the direction they travelled when they were let go. Children then used bi-carbonate soda and vinegar to make film canisters fire into the sky and discussed that a chemical reaction would make a better rocket.
Children then designed rockets on the computers using some 2D software before using a laser printer to cut them.
Thanks to Ms Perry and Mr Ellis for hosting!
