S2 Bridge Building

S2 pupils had an inter house bridge building competition. This event provides an opportunity for pupils to gain an insight into practical engineering and construction. There are lots of pictures on Flickr.

The challenge is to design and build a wooden bridge to span 1000mm which will carry the maximum load for minimum cost.

There were 3 prizes, the best bridge design, best team work and the most cost effective solution. Maree were the winners in all 3 categories, well done!

S2 pupils worked with STEM Ambassadors from the British Army on a day of STEM based problem solving & digital skills activities.

S2 Robot Building & Programming with Army

In the first session, they thought about the equipment difficulties faced by the forces abroad. They worked in teams to come up with innovative, creative solutions to safety equipment which would withstand the heat and heavy use.

In the afternoon, they worked to build & program a robot which could navigate a path. This was tricky as every small change had implications for the rest of the route!
