On Wednesday, 28 June 2017, the Grade 7 pupils were set the challenge of planning, constructing and launching a water rocket. The water rockets were made from 2-litre plastic bottles, styrofoam, cardboard and other assorted materials brought from home.
The pupils engaged in the scientific process in which they began their day planning their designs, followed by building their rockets and launch pads. At the end of the day, the Grade 7’s ventured out onto the field into the gale force winds to attempt the launching of their rockets. Some were successful while others, unfortunately, were unable to engage in ‘lift-off’.
