The Perse School

Cambridge Science Centre visit is plain sailing for Perse Pelican pupils

30 Nov 2018

Year 2 Perse Pelican pupils sailed away to Cambridge Science Centre for a special visit relating to their topic on forces.

The trip allowed them to apply some of the knowledge they have gained during this term over the last few months as they took part in a sailing science workshop. Children made and tested land yachts and had to think carefully about the forces they are using and overcoming.

They had to decide what would be the best size and shape for a sail for their yacht and used a large fan to test their designs before making any improvements required for their craft.

The pupils also had the opportunity to try out some of the other fun activities at the centre and thoroughly enjoyed their visit.
