This term, as part of our MAPPEN unit, ‘Forces and Functions’, we have been exploring physics, engineering principles and the Habit of Mind, ‘remaining open to continuous learning’. As part of our learning in this unit, we were given the team challenge to design and build a balloon powered car that would travel at least 5 metres. We had to consider the principles of engineering, physics concepts and technology and enterprise skills we have explored in class in order to build a successful car.
After designing, planning, building and trialling our cars over the past few weeks, we are now at the stage of doing our final testing.
We can’t wait to reveal how our cars have gone at our upcoming Open Night!
