To finish off a fantastic STEM week, Year 5 received a surprise letter from NASA!  The letter asked them to investigate a range of materials and test them to see which made the best parachute.  The children decided that to test their parachutes they should use an egg which they hoped would land safely on the ground.  The children worked really well in teams to design their parachutes and showed great teamwork skills.  When we tested them there was some mixed results and some mess left off the floor! image
