Protect The Egg

Year 3 spent time this week designing and making a parachute to protect an egg. They had to use their knowledge of materials to create a parachute that would cushion their egg and safely land it on the ground. We launched our parachutes and observed how gravity pulled them towards the Earth. We learnt that Gravity doesn’t pull downwards but pulls towards the Earth’s core – that’s how everyone, no matter where they live on our planet stays safely on the ground.
