Stem Challenge

img_3047img_3048We had 2 P7 teams away to St Paul’s HS today taking part in the STEM Challenge. They were presented with a scenario where an airplane had crashed, passengers were injured and they had to construct a bridge to span a gorge to allow access to the crash site. Their constructions were made using paper, art straws, paper clips and light weight card, it had to span at least 30 cm and hold a weight of 250gms for 30 seconds. Teams were scored in 3 areas, team work, planning and furfilling the brief. Whilst neither team were placed on this occasion, their constructions were well made and easily withheld the force created by the weight. Well done to all 6, boys and girls!
