STEM Challenge

Today in P7S we took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) challenge relating to our class novel ‘Holes’ by Louis  Sachar.

In groups, we had to design and create a free standing hammock out of junk and craft materials which would hold a duplo character. We also tested them to failure to see how much weight they would hold – the winner could hold a staggering 750kg!
