Rocket Balloon Cars

The Junior School pupils recently embarked on an exciting STEM project, building a rocket balloon car. Their enthusiasm and curiosity drove them to explore the realms of aerodynamics, physics, and engineering. With meticulous attention to detail, they designed and assembled a car that utilized the power of a rocket balloon to propel itself forward. Through trial and error, they fine-tuned their creation, experimenting with different materials and techniques to maximize speed and performance. This hands-on experience not only showcased their creativity and problem-solving skills but also sparked a passion for science and engineering within their young minds. The rocket balloon car became a testament to their teamwork, ingenuity, and the limitless possibilities that await those who dare to dream big and reach for the stars.
