Scientific Thinking is the Tops

Einstein, Darwin, Hawkings and now 5T9 - What on earth do they all have in common? Yes they are all scientists who have and can change the world!

Our Year 5s were specially selected by the RAF ( Royal Air Force) to visit their museum and take part in a range of activities around the exciting world of satellites. The pressure was on as the children were tasked with the challenge of landing their satellite designs safely on Earth. They had to take into account a number of factors including air resistance, heat and gravity and all the while make sure their satellite didn’t crash to the ground! 

They held their breaths as the satellites made their journeys to Earth and although tense at times and with their hearts in their mouths …  it was a thrilling and a much remembered experience!
