Forces - Pushes & Pulls

INTECH – Forces – Pushes and Pulls


On Wednesday 3YP took part in a session lead by Phil from Intech.  We looked at how a force can move an object either by pushing or pulling.


Phil helped us to make some super rockets out of 2 litre drinks bottles, together with nose cones and fins to stabilise the rocket.




Once outside Phil explained that he would add water and air under pressure into the bottle to make the force.


The effects were fantastic!  All of our rockets shot up into the air, whilst many of them went at least 50 metres across the field!




It was an amazing session, and one which many of us agreed we would love to try again.


Thanks Phil!
