Engineering

I had a lovely time meeting my new class last Wednesday. I set them an engineering challenge to build a structure that would hold as much weight as possible. Teams of junior engineers then shared ideas, planned, made prototypes, tested and adjusted.  I was impressed not only with the final results but also the thinking skills used and the excellent group work displayed.  Some of the structures held the weight of over 33 textbooks without collapsing!
