On the Form 2’s recent Theme Day the children became NASA engineers for the day and were tasked with the project of constructing space rockets and re-entry capsules. Points were scored on a range of criteria including: distance travelled, aerodynamics, floatability, quality of landing and ease of access for their eggonaut.

The children worked in small groups and were given 20 minutes to discuss and draw their designs. Once planning permission was granted, they had 60 minutes to construct their winning designs. Below is a selection of videos and pictures from the day.2 girls with rocket
