This week the pupils all finished their Automata. There are a few photos in the video before footage of the machines in action:
Today we presented to the parents & guests about our STEM (or STEAM) learning, including a section on the automata Project. The children did a brilliant job of writing scripts, creating presentations and talking to an audience.
The Biggies are spending the day tinkering and engineering. Already we have used our maths skills, measuring, dividing and knowing about the properties of shape; Our problem solving; practical skills and helping each other when two hands are not enough. Our next steps will involve more problem solving and practical skills to get our cams and cam folders sorted and finally we will use some creative thinking to finish our models off.
