Year 5 - Engineering.

Year 5 - Engineering

The STEAM week’s engineering task was to identify a problem and come up with a solution to solve it. As Year 5 are engrossed in space, they explored problems in space such as space debris, no GPS and the effects of zero-gravity on the body. Children showed their understanding of the three problems in a fact retrieval task and applied this to help them create inventions that NASA could use to combat the problem. Children showed enthusiasm and creativity when designing their inventions. From force fields, 20G mobile phones, 3D maps and radars, we definitely have some future engineers on our hands!
