Year 7 send eggs to their death.

Here are year 7 in their science lesson today tasked with making the best parachute designed to carry an egg from the upstairs science lab to the ground below. We considered how we might maximise air resistance and minimise weight as well as making sure our egg passengers had a comfy ride. Here we are busy with our ideas…

 

and here we are testing and timing our parachutes. Thanks to all the staff for parking anywhere else but under the lab window today!

 

 

and there was only one casualty. Oops!
