Home Education Sessions – Outdoor Fun – Parachutes

Event Details

This series of Home Educator sessions is all about having fun outside.  How can being outside help us to learn science?


What material makes the most effective parachute? Try to design a parachute that falls slowly and discover which type of material works best by testing different options. Find out about the role air resistance plays in parachuting.

This session forms part of our special programme, just for home educated young learners, with weekly sessions of hands-on activities.

The sessions will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes and each week will be based on a different curriculum topic. We will also have some free exploration time.
