Engineering: Newspaper Towers

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

This week in 6th Class we discussed Engineering and various types of engineers.  The children worked as Civil Engineers and created Newspaper Towers in groups.  The children had to build a tower that was as high as possible but had to withstand some strength tests.  Firstly they had to predict the height of their tower and then get to building!  The next day we did two tests, the first was a blowing test and in the second we used a hairdryer!!
