This year we have a Science Club at Rutland!! The club, made up of students from 2nd-4th class meets once a week for an hour of hands-on science activities!
For the first half of term we are investigating space science!!!
We all adopted a planet, discovered some incredibly interesting facts and together made a solar system!!!
We also looked at gravity and air resistance with Felix Baumgartner & Brian Cox (on YouTube) . We were inspired to design our very own parachutes!!! Material choice, shape and surface area were important elements of our design process!
We tested our parachutes on the stairs 🙂
We also made rockets to launch ourselves into space, and will post these
