Science came alive at the Prep School

Science came alive on Tuesday, 16 July at the prep school as St Martin’s School participated in the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s global initiative to commemorate the Apollo 11 landing on the moon 50 years ago.

In the Science laboratory, experiments intrigued the science enthusiasts as they watched a number of experiments including a chemical reaction causing a volcanic eruption.
The Wits Engineering faculty demonstrated the science behind the construction of rockets and what enables rocket propulsion and speed.

It was thrilling to witness the rockets being launched and to learn and understand the engineering genius in the design of the rockets. The exhaust temperatures reach 1000 degrees celsius and the SA Rocketary team were on hand to launch the rockets safely. The fuel supply was just enough to ensure the rockets never went higher than 100 meters in the air - 97 meters to be exact.

To keep guests entertained between launches, the prep school drum majorettes walked out onto the field for their first performance.
