Testing the Science Learning Resource 

1. Use a rocket to fire a string to a shipwreck


2. Once the ship and the shore are connected by a string. Construct a device that can go back and forth between the shore and the ship to rescue the 'people' stranded on the ship.


3. What is the story of the rescue? Constructing a story with a writer (Sam Barnes) to be read out as the rescue is enacted. 

Test completed! - we learnt what to change and improve - a big thank you to the ship's crew from Imayla
