This week was the start of science club. The children will be completing a set of challenges based on real life problems, in order to achieve the CREST award.
Their first challenge was called ‘Bridge Blunder.’ The children had to work together to design a bridge (with a 20cm span) using only 5 sheets of paper and a small piece of tape.
To test the strength and safety of their bridges, the children used different weights. One of the bridges held 1KG! Great team work and resilience was demonstrated.
Challenge 1: complete!
