Y5 - NTu - 'Egg-stranauts'

20 October 2020 (by Nicola Turner (nicola.turner1))

Today, the children have carried out some investigations linked with air resistance. These involved throwing paper, dropping paper and running with paper. 

Then, I set the children the challenge of designing an egg capsule in order to land their 'egg-stranaut' safely back on Earth from space (well, high up in the hall actually). They created some interesting designs, but unfortunately, we ended up with lots of smashed egg-stranauts. However, one did manage to survive!

Please ask your children which one survived and why.
