Congratulations to our 6 STEM pupils who represented Priory at an inter-school water rocket competition – in celebration of Tim Peake’s Rocket Launch.
Priory was up against 7 other schools. Our rockets were judged in 3 categories – aesthetics, engineering and height when launched.
We came 1st in the aesthetics category and 2nd in the highest launch category. The judges also commented on how impressed they were with our engineering.
We were also the first school to ever get a rocket to fall at such a speed that it dug a hole in the grass! This made the judges laugh!
Well done boys!
