Western maple, Eastern maple, Peruvian walnut, Paduk, African Mahogany and Birch 

Grade 7’s  – Aerodynamics and flight unit. We’re building rockets and flying them to new heights!

We have achieved sonic flight this term. In late November, we launched a mid power rocket that achieved 362 m/sec or 1303.2 km/h. It travelled fast enough to fold the airframe in half from the forces involved. We hope to break this speed record in Term 2. 

Grade 6’s – Strength and Structures

These students are engaged in wooden bridge construction. Thanks to a local Dollar store for the cheaply priced Epoxy Resin! It has been an amazing transformative project that has challenged these students to think outside the box.

Lot’s of cross-curricular inquiry -based learning taking place!

Next, we will test the structural limits on these bridges and see if they’ll hold up.
