The girls in 5th and 6th class designed and tested their paper space rockets to see how far they would fly. After the first test flight the girls then assessed their space rockets and made some adjustments to increase the distance they could fly. It was brilliant to observe some of the alterations.
- Some adjusted the length of their space rockets to reduce weight
- Some decided to increase the capacity of their launchers by adding a second straw
- Some added wings for a more aerodynamic design
The design changes bore fruit and the original record of 2.7m was smashed and a new record of 3.8m was achieved!
Elon Musk may be interested in some of the design changes!!!
