Attendee Requirements: None
About: In this interactive session, students will be introduced to the basic principles behind rocket launches- and the forces involved in getting a rocket off the ground.
Students will design and build their own paper rockets and be able to launch them, using a compressed air rocket launcher, and learn how to maximise the range or hit a target.
This Masterclass will also look at the recent history and possible future of space flight, as well as the scale of the Universe, made accessible through hands-on activities.
