Rocket Challenge (KS1)

We investigate energy, what it is and what it can do. We look at how it makes things move and fly. We then make some rocket fuel and launch a rocket.

KS Level 1

Each child designs and builds their own rocket – putting all their learning into practice. As usual Hands on Science puts the designs through practical tests with fun activities that everyone enjoys. The session rounds off in a competition – where we expect the best design to win.

This is one of our most established and popular ks1 workshops and sends everyone home with a smile on their face and story to tell mum and dad
