SCHOOLCHILDREN in Potters Bar were given the opportunity to build and fire rockets in a competition organised by the town's Rotary Club.
Pupils from each of the town's seven primary schools converged at Oakmere Primary in Chace Avenue for the contest, which was overseen by Rotarian Doug Fussell.
The schools each entered one team - comprising four children and one teacher - into the competition, which required entrants to make, test and then fly air-propelled rockets.
The competition was won by the team from Ladbrooke JMI School, which fired its rocket the greatest distance.

He added: "I was amazed at the ingenuity and inventiveness of all those who entered."
