P5/6 are hard at work designing and constructing their lorries for the SCDI Charge Challenge. Their challenge is to build an electric lorry to transport as much cargo as possible across a 3m course in 10 minutes.
The class are working in groups to measure and saw wood to create a frame to support the axle and wheels. They will then work on designing the body of their vehicle.
Our STEM Champion, George Burns, provided a safety demonstration before getting to work with the tools.
The winning vehicle from the class will go forward to the compete in the competition at the STEM Showcase at Dumfries House next month.
