Eggs on Mars!


Year 2 were challenged to build landers that would protect their space probe (an egg) and safely deliver it to Mars’ surface. The teams all had the same materials and they came up with a fantastic range of ideas from parachutes to gliders, protective baskets to on-board crash mats. A few probes sadly went splat (well, we thought that was quite funny, actually) and a few sustained a few cracks but most successfully landed. Everyone worked fantastically with their team to try to achieve the objective and did an amazing job.
