Year 5 Technology Masterclass

This year’s Technology Masterclass was attended by 60 Year 5 Pupils for our local primary schools.

In keeping with the ‘Space’ themed masterclass, the pupils enjoyed making rocket-style fruit kebabs. This activity encouraged a discussion around healthy eating and nutrition. Using a pillar drill, pupils then made catapult powered racing cars out of plywood.

They explored the relationship between kinetic energy and velocity.  Our Year 9 Pupil Helpers did an excellent job of measuring the car speeds and facilitating some ‘wacky car races’.
