Engineering & Construction Challenge

Engineer Alison Delahunty visited our school yesterday. She gave a talk about Engineering & Construction to the 5th & 6th Class girls and she gave them the challenge of building a structure using marshmallows and spaghetti !! The children had great fun working together in teams to design and build their structures.

VEX IQ Challenge

5th class girls had a fabulous day in the CIT recently, participating in the VEX IQ Robotics Challenge.

In preparation for the day the children designed and built their own robot. They then prepared for the three challenges! For the first of these challenges the children had to drive & control the robot. For the second challenge they had to work with another team & their robot, to score as many points as possible. For the third challenge they had to program the robot to work autonomously!

All of the children participated so well and they really did their teachers and our school proud.

It was a great day and a fabulous learning experience for all involved
