We are having such a super week back after the holidays. 1 White have been fantastic at working as engineers! We learnt about the job of an engineer and thought about why it is important. Then, we have been given our own engineering challenge to design and build a marble run that lets a marble fall for less than 60 seconds.
Yesterday, we had a day of experimenting different surfaces, balls and ramps to see what will be best to use in our own creation.
Today, we used our learning from yesterday to design our own marble run. We thought about the material that we needed to use that would help it to go fastest and how steep our slides and ramps needed to be.
After this, we worked in teams to decide which design would be the most effective and used this to begin our building! We used communication skills to work well as a team and built some fantastic marble runs.
Look at our finished work! Don’t they all look brilliant.
We will be testing our marble runs tomorrow to see how effective they are.
