5.1’s Egg Landers

This half term we have been learning about forces in Science and in DT we have been designing an egg lander for ‘Tim Peake the egg.’ Our aim was to land him safely with no damage (no cracks or broken eggs). We used our knowledge of gravity and air resistance to design egg landers which we thought would land him safely, however, we did not have many Tim Peake survivors! We tested our eggs in the playground and Tim Peake the egg unfortunately received a lot of injuries because of his crash landings, however, well done to Mr Ahmed & Rhys, Ellie & Tyler and Bethany & Evie for landing Tim Peake safely with no damage! Here are some pictures of our egg landers in action.
