K'Nex Challenge

7 June 2007

On Thursday 7th June 2007, our Year 5 and Year 6 children took part in a fantastic design challenge, organised by 'Create a Future'. This company aims to encourage the growth of a sustainable, innovative, creative and enterprising culture through the development of skills and competencies.

The children had to design a transport system which would carry a Wellington boot and an eraser. They worked in pairs to solve design problems and construct their 'vehicle'. All of the designs were then 'fair tested' to see which one travelled the furthest.

Our winners will attend the Celebration of Young Scientists and Engineers at Birmingham's Thinktank at Millennium Point, in July, where they will take part in the area K'Nex final. We wish them luck.
