FMS Pupils Launch Rockets

Posted on 30/06/2016

Ferndown Upper School came to work with pupils from Ferndown Middle School to investigate the science of rockets. Year 9 worked with Year 7 to investigate how changing the amount of water or the angle of projection changed the distance a rocket flew. The pupils analysed this data in order to ensure their rocket flew to a target. Afterwards year 7 and Year 9 worked with year 5 to create air powered rockets and then had a competition to see which design allowed the rocket to fly the furthest. It was great to is the collaboration between the year groups working together to achieve their goal. Thank you to Ferndown Upper School for an enjoyable and successful morning.
