activity suitable for years 3 - 8 -- taking approx. 2 hours
Our presenter will set your pupils a design and build problem (e.g. a bridge to support a load, or a fairground ride). Pupils are given basic ideas about strong structures and are encouraged to plan how they will solve the problem. They now build their chosen design, altering and improving as they go along. The presenter will give hints about the ergonomic use of pieces and the use of strong shapes.
This is a stimulating activity for boys and girls as it develops the skills of good design, functionality and team work.
