Magna Museum​​​​​​​

Year 8 explored the Magna museum. The museum was split into four very exciting pavilions, fire, water, air and earth.  In each pavilion students learnt scientific facts and saw science displays.  By far the most amazing display was the Fire tornado which left us all flabbergasted.  Later in the afternoon students took part in a workshop, where they built their very own rocket, they designed it carefully to maximise the distance it travels by understanding the science of aerodynamics. Students made links between maths and science. The rockets effectiveness was determined by the speed at which it travelled and therefore knowing formulas such as speed is = to distance/time naturally came into action.
