Rocket Science

Linked with our science topic of Earth in Space, Y5 have been creating our own rockets then launching then using a rocket launcher.  We measured the distance they traveled, then analysed the different variables involved to find out what made some of them fly further.  We eventually concluded that it was how airtight we made the nose cones of the rockets and the force with which we jumped on the rocket launcher which affected the distance they traveled the most.  Isabel's rocket flew the furthest at 20 metres, closely followed by Jacob's at 16.5 metres.
