Engineers Week full of STEM activities
We started of the week by making a 'Kicking Machine". The class had to come up with designs that would launch the ball into a cup which was 12" away. Most of them were successful.
Next the class were assigned a STEM homework project. Using recycled or home materials, they had to either create a boat that floated or a rocket that stood in launch position. They only had 2 days to design and build them and the end results really blew me away, AND all the boats floated!
Finally we engaged in an egg challenge. They had to build a safety container that would protect the egg from cracking when dropped from 2 meters. All were successful the first time round, then we removed some layers of insulation and the safety containers weren't so successful.
All in all, it was a great week, full of laughs, persistence, successful projects and admirable teamwork. Well done guys!
