This morning we worked with a partner to design and build our balloon powered cars to take part in the Busby Grand Prix on Wednesday. There were lots of different ideas such as using Lego, bottles and cardboard to use as the body for the car.
On Monday we took part in a Fair Test. A fair test is when you carry out an experiment and you keep all the parts of the test the same apart from one thing. You carry out the test 3 times to see that it wasn’t just by chance that the outcome happened, that the outcome is consist with the change you made.
Here are some pictures of us carrying out the experiment….
This morning the girls continued their work with the design department from Williamwood. Today there were designing pro types of glasses which they would like to be made into the real thing. The girls showed off their artistic flair and it will be exciting to see what 4 designs will be chosen to be made at Williamwood alongside other designs from Netherlee and Carolside.
This afternoon we were lucky enough to have a visit from the people at Show Racism the red Card. We were learning all about refugees, who they are, what atrocities they face, why they are refugees and how many refugees there are in the world….far too many.
Everyone was inspired by the stories that they heard and I think everyone has come away with a different perspective on refugees and how we all can ensure they are included in society.
