An afternoon of Engineering, Problem Solving , Innovation and most of all COLLABORATION.
We all gathered in the hall excitedly to see stations loaded up with building materials, nuts, bolts, ropes and even battery packs and wires. Not knowing what was going to happen we started our challenge with a Growth Mindset. We Can Do This!!!
It all started with a quick briefing on the basics of using the materials. Our challenge was to construct a theme park ride prototype, which involved a balloon being propelled into the air by fans.
Sometimes it was hard to work together because we all had different ideas to try but we used all of the CPDS dispositions to help us work through the challenge together. It was particularly important to be reflective because we had to make some changes to our model for it to work better than before.
Have a look at some of the photos below of us getting stuck in and constructing our prototype.
