Week 3 - Air Resistance10/02/17Read More
This week we learnt about air resistance and how it affects the car.
We were in teams of 3 – 4 and had a bin bag, string, skewer sticks and one egg. We tied 4 long pieces of string to the 4 corners of the bag to make a parachute and made a raft from the skewers to hang below it. We then cellotaped our team eggs to the raft.

We had a quick introduction on friction before we were split into groups of 4 and were given some materials: bottle tops, straws, rectangular cardboard bases, cocktail sticks, balloons, blu-tac and some sellotape and we were told to build a car.
