Engineering thrills ejection seat - practical activity 3



Description

This incredibly stimulating practical gets students to build a model ejection seat ride.

An ejection seat fairground ride catapults the riders into the air. Often it’s small enough to be transported by lorry.
Passengers sit in a small capsule attached by elastic ropes to two uprights. The capsule is pulled down to stretch the elastic, then released.
Apparently it’s really exciting!

We at at SchoolsWorld prefer to keep our feet on the floor so a model is more up our street.
