Another week and another successful Science club meeting – well, almost…..

As the year 7 and 8 science enthusiasts began to get to grips with some rocket building, a small glitch almost spelt disaster for the meeting!

Instead of building some mini-rockets, the girls got to begin thinking about how best to design their rockets, and discuss the best way to test them.

Should we aim for the highest rocket launch? Or the greatest distance travelled? Or should we aim to launch our rockets as fast as possible?

These are all factors the girls came up with to investigate, and we will be looking at investigating them all in next weeks club! So if you couldn’t make it today, make sure you come along for some rocket building next Thursday! 12.45pm in Science 5 🙂

Hello and welcome,

This is the official blog for the Science Department at Loreto College, St Albans.

Once it gets going properly, we hope to have lots of activity here – reports on projects and activities done in lessons, photographs and accounts of trips and extra-curricular events, articles about exam technique and revision, and news and explanations of topical science.

Hope you enjoy your visit!

Mr Bilton
