Year 8 Science Club - rocket building!

This term Science Club for Year 8s has been talking about expeditions to the Moon and Mars, and following a series of NASA projects on rocket building with Mrs Jensen. We made an instrument for measuring altitude, and then a rocket powered by compressed air. We found we couldn’t seal all the leaks, so we didn’t manage to launch the rocket, but we were pleased with the progress we made. Earlier this year we looked at genetics, strokes and brain damage, and infections, all interests of the Science Club members.
