5th and 6th class pupils were given a selection of materials and had to work together to create the most effective foam rocket possible. Once the agreed rocket was assembled the children were able to incorporate maths by measuring distance travelled versus force. They were very successful making the rockets and really enjoyed it.
Once children had practiced launching their rockets they were paired with a child from Junior and Senior Infants and had to teach the younger child the fundamentals of the rockets and how best to launch it.
Have a look at some of our pictures.
