Students had a fulfilling experience during the ballistic workshop on the 3rd March. This involved team collaboration to launch projectiles by working out angles, distances and trajectories to ensure their cannonballs landed on target. The session examined real-life examples of humans acting as projectiles, ranging from astronauts to human cannonballs. After the session, students had the opportunity to browse around the museum centre and have a look at other models as well as actively engage in some of the activities on display.
Both Year 9 and Year 10 students were very much interested and engaged throughout their time at the Science Centre. Students asked enquiring questions with a prime focus on forces and were able to work meticulously within a group. The sense of competition made it fun and exciting, and students demonstrated resilience and perseverance when challenged.
