University of Bristol Blast Off!!!!

 

As an exciting way of introducing our topic and as a chance to do some experimental science, University of Bristol class, designed and built rockets. The rockets were powered by compressed air, which pushed out water under high pressure-leading to an explosive launch!

We tested different sizes of bottles to see whether that affected the height the rocket travelled. 

 

Look at the results below.

Stardust...a superstar rocket. Which almost ended up in Sian's garden!
