At the Leisure Centre in Halifax schools from within Calderdale had a great day challenging one another to launch a missile into ‘the atmosphere’ and then safely return the rocket’s capsule back to terra firma!

The picture shows a 100% perfect landing when the winning team in the Advanced Group, Ryburn Valley High School, had a great total score in the competition. The capsule not only achieved a height of three metres, but floated gently back to earth through the centre of its launch window!

The other photograph shows all three age group winners with Crossley Heath School taking two of the three age groups and of course Ryburn the Advanced.
