Y5 Rocket Launch Attempt #1

Year 5 have worked in teams to design and make rocket ships out of plastic bottles.

Today we took our bottles outside and created chemical reactions with vitamin tablets and warm water to launch them.

As is the case with many space missions, we were faced with a number of problems and some launches went smoother than others! (See the video below for proof)

We will all be making a few tweaks to our designs, before attempting our second launch later in the week!
