For August's competition, we challenged you to build your own rocket, using materials that you can find at home. The results were space-tacular!  


Congratulations to our 4 winners:

Ayla Parkin, age 9

Look at this gigantic rocket! Made from an old washing machine drum base, she will certainly spin to outer space!


Dallas Dhunay, age 7

The neatest recycled rocket we've ever seen. You'd never know this was made from trash! It also includes a super window for the astronauts to gaze down at Earth. 


Gabriella Clarke, age 7

A lot of hard work has gone into these. Look how strong and sturdy they are! Well done Gabriella! 




Alizee Valero, age 11

 

We love Alizee's imagination - we’ve never seen a dinosaur go to space before! She's done a clever job engineering recycled objects into different space crafts. 



We hope you enjoy your Destination: Space book written by astrophysics professor Dr Christoph Englert and illustrated by Tom Clohosy Cole.


A huge well done to everyone else who entered their creative designs! We just had to show them off!

Astrid, age 8, with her alien spacecraft called Dangerous Dare!!


Harriet, age 10 with her shiny, sparkly and tall space rocket.


Rebecca, age 9, just look at that big jet engine and green thrusters! A very powerful rocket indeed.


 Findlay, aged 7 with his brightly coloured rocket! Look at it soaring gracefully through the sky. 


Alfie, age 8 with his tall and sophisticated rocket! 

Sam, age 5 with his beautifully patterned rocket! Just look at those patterns on his wings! 

Gaétan, age 3 with his strong rocket. 

Celeste, age 4 with the most wonderful space set up: she's built a rocket to get you to the moon, a space pod to explore aliens and a hotel for when astronauts need their rest! Super! 

Clara, age 7, with her elegant rocket. That big window will provide spectacular views!
