Year 9 attempt to take to the skies

Leave a comment

As part of last week’s science and engineering theme, our Year 9 scientists were given limited materials and instructions, and challenged to create something that would fly.

In the interests of safety, Mrs Grove and I stepped in and risked setting ourselves alight as we tried to launch the hot air balloons. Unfortunately the wind was against us and we couldn’t reach lift off.

We have saved the remaining balloons and shall reattempt flight at a later date – preferably on a much calmer day!
