Eights Explore Energy

Mrs Marcella Mortison | Science

This term the Year 8 class have been exploring different types of energy in Science. The challenge for all students at the end of term was to make a self-propelled car using limited materials. Students were required to transform elastic potential energy into kinetic energy to propel their vehicles.

At the conclusion of 8B’s lesson last Science lesson for the Term, 6 cars were able to race with Lewis May’s car finishing first by a narrow margin.
