Parachutes

Friday, December 02, 2016

The Year 8 science class have been learning about forces during Term 4. The students were given the challenge of building and refining a parachute that would be able to carry an egg from the top of the tree house to the ground and land without breaking the egg. After a few trials and adjustments, the students were confident about parachute ability to carry the egg safely to the ground. Most students succeeded in landing the egg safely, but more enthusiasm was displayed when the eggs did not land safely. No eggs were returned to the teacher at the end of the lesson!
