STEM challenge day

Today the Year 4/5 class were given the challenge to work in teams of three or four to design and build a marble run. The objective was to engineer the run which would take the maximum amount of time for the marble to reach the end.

Teams used trial and error in their designs, with testing and re-testing, modifications needed to happen on the spot as creations failed when put to the test! Overall the students showed persistence and ingenuity in their creations, and displayed an excellent level of teamwork.

The winning team was Henry, Jobe, Eliza and Cody, with a maximum roll time of 7 seconds.
