Step 3: Engineering
Storm Emma may have delayed our Engineering Awareness Week but we had fun the following week attempting the 'Engineering Challenges', learning about bridges, and building bridges to support our toys!
Who can create the tallest structure?!
This was voted the most fun activity by all the classes! It required a lot of concentration, spaghetti and marshmallows but with some very creative results!
Senior Infants listened to the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. It was great fun designing a bridge that was tall enough for the troll to stand under and strong enough to support not one but three goats!
The Junior Infants listened to the story of The Three Little Pigs. They were set with the task to design and build a house with supporting walls, large enough to fit all the pigs. Check out the photos below!
