Maths and Science In Action

Build a Naval Shell

Incorporating maths, science and design technology into one exciting but challenging workshop. In this workshop pupils can explore how aerodynamics and ballistics are used in the design of modern shells. The session starts with a short introduction to the science of ballistics and the history of artillery. Pupils work in teams to construct their own shell to be fire from our compressed air cannon. Pupils will use data to predict the range and impact point of their shells.

Target Group: KS3 and KS4
Price: £10 per student
