A summary
Join us for hands-on activities exploring science and engineering with a Christmas theme. Educational fun for all the family, no prior experience needed. Who can build the fastest car and the slowest parachute? Design and build a car using a variety of materials which you will launch with a slingshot to see how far and fast it travels. Design and launch a rocket. The Bloodhound Car uses a parachute as one of its mechanisms to slow down safely. You will explore the science of air resistance through making and testing different types of parachutes and see the factors that affect drag. You can book for the morning, afternoon or both sessions.
