In this workshop pupils can explore how aerodynamics and ballistics are used in the design of modern shells.
The session starts with a short introduction to the science of ballistics and the history of artillery. Pupils then work in teams to construct their own shell to be fired from our compressed air cannon. Pupils will use data to predict the range and impact point of their shell.
