Rocket Challenge
Last Saturday five KS4 students travelled to the Emirates Aviation University to take part in the Emirates Water Rocket Challenge. The students were given materials to build the rocket where the key was to design it as aerodynamically as possible to reduce drag. There were many challenges along the way as the students debated on the amount of weight to add to get as much kinetic energy as possible. The students were given two launch attempts and the winning team had the rocket which travelled the longest distance.
The competition was aimed at Years 10-12 students and involved a lot of Physics knowledge, particularly in the aerodynamic design of the rocket to reduce drag and getting the centre of gravity spot on for maximum distance.
The team performed fantastically well and finished in 13th place out of 62 teams entered across Dubai.
Well done Al Baraa Jadellah, Rishi Joshi, Arvana Chana, Andrea Antonuccio and Arjan Khele!
