5HJ Parachute Challenge

5Hj have been learning about air resistance in science this half term.  They were given a challenge to design a parachute that would safely carry a mini astronaut to earth.  Using their scientific knowledge about the relationship between air resistance and surface area they came up with some super designs.  The winning pair were Alex and Dylan, who found that if they made a large, light parachute, out of a bin bag,  it would transport their astronaut to earth slowly.
