Year 5 - STEM Challenge Trip

Eight children in Year 5 were given the exciting opportunity to work in collaboration with David, an engineer from Perkins, to complete the Primary Engineer Challenge.

The children were set the task to produce an electric car that would travel up a ramp.  Over several weeks they worked with their partner to create the chassis and then used electronics to power their vehicle. The children also produced a portfolio of their designs and evaluated their final product.

Alongside Miss Jones and Mrs Ewins, the children attended a Celebration Event where they tested their vehicles. They were also awarded points for their designs and how they communicated their ideas to the judges. If you wish to see more photos click here
