During our themed week this term we learned about space exploration. We investigated the Curiosity Rover on Mars and learned about how machines designed to be used on different planets are engineered to survive a rough landing.

Our challenge was to design a method of protecting an egg from a fall using a selection of different equipment. You can have a look at our designs below.
