MOPS Rocketry Club - MOPS Mission 2

This term saw another nine students join the MOPS Rocket Club for Mission 2. Students again explored the physics and design of rockets and built Estes Alpha 11 model rockets flying A8-3 engines. Again we got some great height and windy conditions have left a few adorning trees around the school. Lots of fun was had by all!


A full range of pictures are found here.

Tournament of the Minds

MOPS put together a team of 7 students to compete in the regional Tournament of the Minds competition. The team had to create and perform a theatrical piece, explaining the evolution of the mobile phone. When you see what they came up with, it reminds you of the amazing technological advances society has made in recent times.

Drama Enrichment Group

This year, the drama enrichment group has been made up of 18 enthusiastic K-2 students. With Mrs Hamers, they have been learning different drama games, such as "Stretch and Curl", "Melting Shape", "Mirror", "Magic Clay" and "High, Middle and Low." They also acted out picture books, where they created the movements to go along with the story.

MOPS Rocketry Club - MOPS Mission 1

 Summary  -  Well MOPS Mission 1 was a great success with all students successfully building and launching an Astra or Alpha 1 model rocket with an A engine that took the rocket well over 100m high. All but one were recovered despite some parachute mishaps! It has been a real delight to work with the 5/6 students and their enthusiasm and effort in attending this after school enrichment project. You can see photos of the launch here.

Term 4 will see ten students in 3/4 given the opportunity of joining MOPS Mission 2 for a repeat session.
