Design Challenges in P6

Our project on Inventors and Inventions gave us the opportunity to take part in weekly design challenges.  We worked in small groups each week and had to meet specific criteria to make our designs successful.  We have made bridges, newspaper towers, basketball stands, wind cars and our own unique inventions.  We have also been using our STEM skills to find our how things work.  We have been using tools (screwdrivers and hacksaws) to take things apart to see what goes on inside and then trying to put them back together again, not always successfully!
