Rocket Science!

For our third and final science lesson at Allerton High, we delved into the world of rocket science! We learnt about NASA and Space X and their missions to get to Mars; NASA would take over 2 years whereas Space X would take half a year because of the fuel stations they plan to send into orbit. After exploring rockets further, we then started to make our own vitamin C rocket.

Vitamin C tablets produce Carbon Dioxide – a gas which, when trapped, causes an explosion in the canister. With our safety goggles on, we worked in pairs and small groups to send our rockets into the ceiling (the bigger the dent, the better)!
