Year 5 trip to Jodrell Bank

Last week Year 5 went on a trip to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.

Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to see the Lovell Radio telescope at Jodrell Bank last week. They took part in two workshops linked to the topic of 'Earth and Space' as well as many other hands-on activities.  The Year 5 Science ambassadors, picked out some of the highlights as watching  a rocket engine simulation using a plastic bottle and ethanol to create a huge reaction.  Also, taking part in outdoor science experiments, printing out a live feed from the radio telescope, exploring an infra-red camera, plasma ball and experiencing the physics of a black hole.  A fantastic day out was had by all!
