Space Haggis!

For Burns’ Night 2021 – Simon Howie, Scottish Butcher celebrated by sending a Haggis into Space! This year they marked the one year anniversary of this event by holding a competition to design a Space Flight Badge. Schools from all over Scotland took part and our pupils thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. You can see lots of the entries on their website http://www.thescottishbutcher.com and we think that our pupils designs stood out as being very bold and creative. The pupils had to stick to the brief of only using 4 colours and including the name of the butcher and the Space Haggis wording on the badge. The website also included some science experiments to complement the activity and pupils were challenged to drop eggs from a height using certain materials provided: newspaper, a balloon, string, tape, plastic cup and straw. Each item had a cost and the winner was judged on not cracking the egg and the lowest cost involved. Pictured below are our entries for the Space Flight Badge.
