ASP Science Ambassadors running the weekly Primary Science Club held a taster event for new boys thinking of becoming Science Ambassadors.
Over 20 children from four local schools attended the event, where the apprentices, guided by experienced Science Ambassadors, helped them to design and make landing systems for protecting an egg launched to a great height on top of a water rocket. The systems were then tested outside the Yang Science Centre with two out of the 15 original eggs surviving both launch and re-entry, an impressive achievement.
Feedback from all the primary schools involved in the Primary Science Club has been outstanding and a real tribute to the dedication and skill of the Science Ambassadors who planned and ran them this year. Everyone is now looking forward to a new series of events next term, with the new apprentices becoming fully fledged Science Ambassadors, planning and running their own sessions.
