The students in Room 10 and 11 that joined me for a 'Technology Challenge', while the others were at Thames Valley swimming.
The students had to create a 'marble run' (in only 40 minutes) with only 10 sheets of newspaper, 20 lolly sticks, a small piece of blu-tac, sellotape and 2 elastic bands. They tried to make their run as long and as high as possible with some changes in direction, all of which earned them points. In the end we were 'beaten by the lunch bell', but they really worked well together and managed to created some very creative structures. Here they are hard at work.....
We also have a video clip of the students in action and some time lapse photography - thanks to the IPad expertise of our students. I will put these on too, as soon as I know how.
Not as easy as they look, well done to those that finished theirs. More to follow next week...
Rm 6 are really enjoying exploring their interests and they shared their 'Passion Projects' in our assembly.
Well done to Amelie Foster, James Harvey and Corey Richards for exhibiting our school values and winning certificates this week.
How far can you make a marble jump? Rm 10 students created a series of ramps, using roof spouting and cardboard boxes. The winning team made their marble jump 100cm, and two teams tied for 1st place (total cms jumped) after three test trials scoring a total of 272cm jumped.
