The senior classes had a great time exploring scienceworks on Friday. What was your favourite part? What did you learn at the 'simple machines' show or in the 'think ahead' section?
This week, we have been learning about the design elements and techology that goes into building towers.
Today, we put our knowledge to the test. Our task - to build the tallest and strongest tower. It had to be free standing, and include the elements that we had been learning about. Our tower had to support a container which had coins added to it.
Questions to comment on:
